Notes
Survey number HABS WA-148
Building/structure dates: 1909 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1959
Significance: This building represented a pivotal phase of Seattle architectural development. Reflecting an awareness of the American tradition of wooden architectural forms (as well as the superabundance of timber resources in the Pacific Northwest), it also marked the introduction to this region of the more recent architectural aims of the Midwest "prairie architects," and the tentative adaption of these aims to a new environment. The building stood in sharp contrast to its "American Renaissance" neighbors at the Exposition.
