Levi Monroe House

This 1903-built house in Spokane, Washington is currently on the market! With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, it has 3,600 square feet and a $795,000 price tag.

It was built for Levi and Sara Monroe. From 1902-1906, Levi Monroe served as the Livestock Editor at Spokane Daily Chronicle and served as the Spokane Chamber of Commerce from 1906-1920. He contributed to the planning and development of early Spokane’s business community.

During the Depression, Monroe was the assistant to James O’Sullivan, Secretary of he Columbia Basin Commission.  In this capacity, he worked with federal, state and local government officials in the planning of the Grand Coulee Dam.

The house also operated as a traditional tea house called “6th Avenue Tea,” but has since been sold.
