Classification: Historic Contributing

The McEnery Building was completed in 1901 by William McEnery for use as a saloon for F.S. Easum. (McEnery came to Garfield County in 1862 and died in 1913.) Around 1915, Keattes Brothers Pool Hall occupied the building, and later the popular Sommerville Club moved into the storefront. Later uses of the building include a T.V. repair shop, a drug store, and gift shop. The offices for the East Washingtonian newspaper now occupies the McEnery Building.

The one-story painted brick building has a central peaked parapet flanked by small brick pilasters with pyramidal caps. The building is similar in design to the Hazelton and Black buildings to the east.
