Sayers Building

This 1890 building, named after William Sayer, is most famous for housing the Bee Hive Store, purveyor of "Dry Goods, Notions, and Men's Furnishings." The popular department store, which served Walla Walla for more than 70 years, closed in 1977, but local residents still fondly recall stories about The Bee Hive.


Recent façade and structural renovations in 2018 brought back life to this iconic building. The project received positive feedback from the community and was awarded Washington State’s 2018 Brick & Mortar Rehabilitation Award by the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. 

Retail & Office

The Sayers Building offers retail & office space along Main St. in historical downtown Walla Walla and is home to prominent town businesses including Starbucks and Coffee Perk.
