Walking Tour of Historic Brownes Addition
Lead by Ron Krueger. In the late 1870s a 35-year-old lawyer by the name of J.J. Browne acquired 160 acres west of the unincorporated town of Spokane Falls. He soon platted the property and sold the parcels as residential lots. Queen Anne style structures predominated during the 18802. But the zenith of domestic architecture occured during the 1890s. And during Spokane’s Age of Elegance, Browne’s Addition was THE residential area in which to live. On this tour we will see the greatest mansions (many with matching carriage houses), six of which were built by Spokane’s pre-eminent architect, Kirkland Cutter. We will tour two of the mansions, including one of Cutter’s. We will also see on of the homes of James Glover, the Father of Spokane. For lunch (on your own) we’ll head to Italia Trattoria. Total walking distance: a little over a mile and a half. Includes transportation.
