The Elmendorf House is historically significant for its association with pioneer businessman and civic leader Frederic Elmendorf and architecturally significant as a rare local example of the Dutch Colonial Revival style. Arriving from New York before Spokane’s Great Fire of 1889, Elmendorf founded Elmendorf and Elmendorf Real Estate, Loan and Insurance Company together with his brother. Upon his death, the company was one of the largest and oldest business of its kind in the city. Also notably identified with civic progress, Elmendorf was the original incorporator of the present Chamber of Commerce and was involved in the development of numerous other civic organizations.
