Historic Properties of Spokane
The Page-Ufford House is an excellent example of the "Free Classic" Queen Anne style. The rear of the house commands a panoramic view of Latah Creek, Latah Valley and west Spokane. Possessing an irregular, steeply pitched hip roof, non-symmetrical facade, multiple exterior textures, a full-width wrap-around front porch and a prominent three-story circular tower, the house is certainly a high-style example of Queen Anne. The tower, which immediately draws the eyes of passersby, has its original curved windows and is topped with what is known as a witch's hat roof. A unique distinction of the property is the unusual variety of window designs: a keyhole window, an ocular window, an oval window, a diamond window, and a large arched Islamic-shaped window with multiple decorative leaded-glass lights. Originally built for Flora and Alba Page, a wealthy financier who owned the Page Land Company, the home was eventually purchased by Ethel and William Ufford, a well-known and successful lumberman.
The Page-Ufford House is a contributing property in the Browne’s Addition Historic District which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
