Historic Properties of Spokane
The Farline House, located just north of Lincoln Park, sits in a neighborhood of relatively modern homes just east of the edge of the older South Central neighborhood. The home is located on a corrner lot and sits canted, with the front elevation faces to the southwest. Designed by Frank Yoshio Toribara, a Seattle-educated architect who moved to Spokane in the 1950s, and built by the Vines Construction Company, this ranch style home contains many unique features and stands out in comparison to the surrounding homes. The eye catching roof line and prominent use of windows are easily seen from the exterior while the interior of the home holds many other distinguishing aspects. The home was occupied by Louis and Ruth Farline from shortly after the time of its construction until 2014, when the home was purchased by the current owners.
