Historic Properties of Spokane
Graham House (Charlotte)
The history of the Charlotte Graham House, a great example of the American Four Square style, is closely intertwined with that of its neighbor to the north, the Thomas and Charlotte Graham House. That residence was built in 1896 for the Graham family who had recently arrived after building a considerable fortune through mining interests. Thomas Graham and his wife arrived in Spokane at an auspicious time. The city and the region were recovering from the financial crisis sometimes called the “Panic of 1893.” The Charlotte Graham House as an excellent example of architecture during the period when newly-achieved affluence was transforming the formerly open land of the upper South Hill into a haven for Spokane’s upper class citizens.
The Charlotte Graham House is listed individually on the Spokane Register and is also a contributing property in the Booge's Addition Historic District.
