Historic Properties of Spokane
Browne House (Guy)
The Guy Browne House is architecturally significant as one of Spokane County’s earliest and best preserved examples of an American Foursquare style home. The home was designed for Guy Browne, who by the age of 35 had risen to the level of president of a successful banking and property investment empire started by his father, J.J. Browne. Guy Browne, with the rest of the influential Browne family, was instrumental in the development of Spokane and the Moran Prairie. Over a century old, the Guy Browne House stands as a reminder of the significant influence of the Browne family.
