While there are older homes within the city limits of the small rural community of Latah, none can compare with the architectural skill and excellent condition of the Ham-McEachern House.  The house exhibits the charm of Queen Anne styling popular in Eastern Washington prior to 1890, combined with the placidity of small town landscaping.  The home was built in 1886 by D. T. Ham, co-founder of Latah's first store, who became one of the most influential political and business leaders in Washington just after the turn of the century.  The next major owner of the property was William McEachern, Latah's first banker.  The home has been closely related to Latah's and Spokane County's commercial and political history.
