Smith House (Edwin)
This house, designed in the Tudor Revival style by architect Charles Wood, was constructed for noted Spokane resident Edwin A. Smith. Smith was an editor of the Cowles Publishing Company’s farm journals for forty years. A vocal supporter of the American farmer, Smith was an avid crusader for improving farm life. Through his editorials and publications, he tried to alleviate the isolation of the western farm family.
