Historic Properties of Spokane
The J.W. Cook House, a superb example of the free classic Queen Anne style, is the oldest house in the Lincoln Park Addition. Constructed during the turn of the century when most farm houses in the area were frame buildings, the brick masonry-supported Cook House is one of five remaining brick houses built in unincorporated Spokane County before 1910. In addition, the house is the product of master craftsman John W. Cook, and is the only house found in all of Spokane County that features a unique application of decorative stucco that simulates brick veneer. The property retains excellent exterior integrity in its original location, setting, materials, workmanship, and its association with early Spokane.
