Mission Avenue Historic District

Mission Avenue Historic District
No
Yes

Developed in the late 19th century through the combined efforts of Spokane speculators and Jesuit missionaries, the Mission Avenue Historic District is the most intact remnant of the city's first residential suburbs and includes a significant collection of late 19th and early 20th century houses located on one of the city's oldest landscaped boulevards.  Seven blocks in length, the district is unified by the canopy of trees that divides the broad boulevard.  Facing the street on either side are a variety of Queen Anne, Four Square, Craftsman and Bungalow style houses that reflect the substantial architecture of the period and the original suburban character of the area.  While other parts of the boulevard have suffered from new construction, the district still reflects a period when the area was an impressive drive that formed the centerpiece of one of the city's finest residential neighborhoods.
