Historic Properties of Spokane
Built in 1914 during the height of the Arts & Crafts influence in America, the Harry & Evelyn Stimmel House is an excellent example of domestic bungalow architecture embellished in the Craftsman tradition. The Stimmel House was constructed by Spokane home designer/home builder, Clayon E. Felits, who manifested his skills as an accomplished artisan through his personal artistic interpretation and purist approach to the Craftsman style. To date, a total of ten houses built in Spokane have been attributed to Feltis. In 1914, Harry A Stimmel and his wife, Evelyn, purchased the property. Stimmel, employed as a "toll engineer" at Pacific Telegraph & Telephone Company, owned the house until 1916.
