Historic Properties of Spokane
Built in 1912, the Mack-Kane House is an excellent example of a Craftsman Style bungalow. The house is distinguished by a unique design, an original garage that echoes the quality, materials, and architectural elements of the house and by grounds and a basalt rock wall remnants that accentuate the property. The home was built for Spokane attorney, Mansfield Mack, and erected by Ivan Abraham, an accomplished Spokane builder who constructed several other homes in the Rockwood District. The house was later home for nearly 60 years to Spokane furniture maker Owen Kane and his daughter Katherine. Unusual for its four front-facing gables and facade design and for its “artistic” interpretation of the identifying features of the Craftsman Style, the home retains excellent integrity in all respects.
The Mack-Kane House is a contributing property in the Rockwood Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
