Historic Properties of Spokane
Aaron L. Lundquist, a noted contractor who built several homes throughout Spokane, built the house and sold it to Charles Winter, vice president of Spokane and Eastern Trust Company. The architect was Earl Morrison, famous as Spokane's "Boy Architect," who designed several homes on Spokane's South Hill while still a student at South Central High School (now Lewis and Clark). Lundquist and Morrison teamed up to build many fine homes in Spokane and even shared an office downtown. The Winter House is a Mission Revival style with a parapet in the portico supported by heavy columns. The interiors were elegantly crafted with a highlight being the living room adorned with eighteen fluted mahogany columns with cast Corinthian capitals - six of which are classically tapered round columns, ten which are squared engaged columns, and the final two smaller square columns flank the hearth.
