The Rosebush House is reminiscent of thatch-roofed cottages found in the countryside of Northern France and the home's unique garage resembles a Medieval-inspired carriage house. Built for Waldo Rosebush, general manager and treasurer of the Inland Empire Paper Company, the Rosebush House and garage were designed by Harold Whitehouse, one of Spokane's most accomplished architects. The English Cottage/Norman vernacular influence is typical of much of Whitehouse's work during the 1920s-1930s, but the design for the Rosebush property is singularly unusual and distinctive.
