J.W. Turner House

Dispatch from Snickers’ Mom: I have to be honest, when I saw this house in Spokane, Washington, I immediately wanted to pack my bags and move back to the Lilac City, which is my hometown.

From HistoricSpokane.org: “The J. W. Turner House, located in the Rockwood Historic District, is an excellent example of a Tudor Revival Craftsman style home as seen if the half-timbering, basalt foundation and flared gables. John E. Anderson, who built many of the homes in the District, commissioned noted Spokane architect, Carl Jabelonsky, to design the house. The house is also significant for its association with several prominent Spokane businessmen. The first owner of the home, J. W. Turner, was an early Spokane refrigeration pioneer and merchant. Subsequent owners include Edgar Van Brundt, treasurer for the Washington Brick, Lime, and Sewer Pipe Company, and Peter Murphy who was prominent in the regional livestock industry.”

The Turner House is a contributing property in the Rockwood Historic District, listed on the National Register of Historic Places 4/14/1997.
