Historic Properties of Spokane
The Currie House, one of the oldest houses in Spokane, is an exceptional example of Queen Anne architecture. Constructed in 1889, the home was designed by master architect William J. Carpenter and built for mining entrepreneur and city councilman John A. Currie. Historically, the home is a testament to the success of early development and settlement of the area. The two-and-one-half story home displays a variety of Queen Anne style elements including a steeply pitched roof with a large front-facing dormer, exterior wall cladding and trim depicting various patterns, materials, and colors, vertical windows with transom lights, and a full-width front porch with decorative brackets. Over 125 years old, the Currie House retains remarkable interior and exterior architectural integrity.
