The Queen Anne architecture is one of few examples left in Spokane, that one can actually visit and partake of tea, pastries, etc. and experience the nostalgia of another era, as so few of these homes are still in their original architectural state and open to viewing.
Originally, this home belonged to a historical business pioneer of Spokane, a Mr. Levi Monroe.
Mr. Monroe is of historic significance to Spokane as he was Livestock Editor for the Spokane Chronicle and later served as the secretary for the Spokane Chamber of Commerce, as a long time officer he contributed to the formation and planning of Spokane’s business community. Mr. Monroe also served as an -officer for the Washington Livestock Association, Washington Horticulture Society, owned and operated his own advertising agency and later served as Secretary to the Columbia Basin Commission where he was instrumental in the planning of the Grand Coulee Dam and the great change it brought to Eastern Washington.
