The 1913 Sonora Smart Dodd House has been added to the National Register of Historic Places and the dedication is set for Friday Oct. 15 at 10 a.m.
The Dodd House is located just off Perry Street at 603 S. Arthur and it has been carefully restored by its owners Jerry and Bev Numbers. Dodd was the founder of Father's Day 100 years ago and this summer there were several celebrations in her honor around town. Read more about Dodd here.
The last Spokane buildings to receive this designation were the Looff Carrousel in 1977, and the Hutton Building (9 South Washington Street) in 1983.
