Architectural artistry in Browne's Addition



Celebrated Spokane artist Tom Quinn, just finished painting a mini mural as a welcoming greeting at the front door of the 1899 House Bed and Breakfast at 1728 West First in Browne's Addition, in celebration the historic home's 116th year. Owners Louie Flores III and Gillian Cranehaun have been lovingly restoring the interior and exterior home since 2002, and operating it as a two suite bed and breakfast, serving gourmet meals in a classical Queen Anne setting. In the coming months the striking exterior paint job will be finished. They are also finishing a third suite. Originally called the Edward Louis Powell house, it was designed by famed builder and architect, Loren Rand and constructed in 1889. Its designer was then well-known master architect, Loren Rand, who designed many preeminent buildings throughout Spokane after the great fire of 1889, such as Lewis & Clark High School and the Masonic Temple. You can get more information and see more photos at 1899house.com. The phone number is 509-301-1377.

The Edward Louis Powell House was built in a 'restrained Queen Anne' style, in 1899 for Spokane's third mayor and his wife Dora, after he was no longer in office (he was a single-term mayor, as most are, from 1893-4). Its designer was then well-known master architect, Loren Rand, who designed many preeminent buildings throughout Spokane after the great fire of 1889, such as Lewis & Clark High School and the Masonic Temple. Their five children were born and raised in the home, and it remained in the family until the 1950's.

Thank you for this story. One correction the home was built in 1899, not 1889. Thanks again, Louie Flores III
