Nuzum House

Nuzum House
Richard & Jessie Nuzum House
503 W. Sumner Avenue See Map
Cutter & Malmgren
Cliff / Cannon

Constructed in 1912, the Nuzum house is reminiscent of seventeenth century "black and white" Tudor-style structures built in towns, hills and meadows throughout England.  Celebrated Spokane architectural firm, Cutter and Malmgren, designed the home which was purchased in 1916 by Richard W. Nuzum, one of Spokane's most famous civil and criminal attorneys.  Richard Nuzum and his wife, Jessie, were long-standing residents, living in the house for 30 years.  The home is well-preserved with a high degree of architectural integrity and is a hallmark example of the American Tudor Revival style.

The Nazum House is a contributing property in the Marycliff-Cliff Park Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
