James Glover Mansion

James Glover Mansion

South Hill

1889-90: Designed by Kirtland Cutter for James Glover, the “Father of Spokane” who founded the town of Spokane Falls in 1873. Although built of granite and half timbering the house possesses qualities of the Shingle Style, which developed on the East Coast in the 1880s, but is rare in the Northwest. In addition to its exterior form with roofs sweeping down to the ground, the “living hall” containing the main staircase, a fireplace and comfortable seating as well as a balcony overlooking it, is characteristic of the style. In the 1970s, part of the site was sold for the building of a Unitarian church and the house served as church offices. It is now a milieu for weddings and catered events.
