Thu., April 19, 2007

The City Council approved the nomination of a Northwest building for the Spokane Register of Historic Places last week.

The 1903 Chamberlin House at 2627 W. Gardner Ave. is a free classic Queen Anne placed on the local register. It is owned by Henry York and Leonor Steiner.

Its exterior is documented in a promotional plan book by Chamberlin Real Estate & Improvement Co. of Spokane in 1907. Modifications over the years have been mostly on the inside.

The house was built for Gilbert and Annie Chamberlin. He was president of the Chamberlin real estate company.

The house is listed as a contributing property in the Nettleton’s Addition National Historic District.

The council also approved nominations for buildings in Browne’s Addition, the lower South Hill and downtown.
