With its low-pitched front-gabled roof with widely overhanging eaves, scalloped verge board, massive decorative brackets, rough-cut wood siding and second floor balconies and gallery porches, the Koerner House is an excellent example of the American Swiss Chalet Style.  One of very few houses in this style in Spokane, the Koerner House possesses a high degree of craftsmanship.  The home was built in 1912 for Carl Koerner, a successful Spokane accountant, and his wife Mathilda.  Koerner worked on the plans himself, probably with the aid of Peter Moe, a draftsman for prominent Spokane architect Carl Jabelonsky, who may also have contributed to the design.
