W.J.C. Wakefield House

Browne’s Addition

W.J.C. Wakefield acted as the attorney for John Finch and Amasa Campbell, playing a major role in their success as mine owners and capitalists. It is probably the first Mission Revival house in the Northwest. When Cutter built the prize-winning Idaho Building at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, a powerful, rustic structure of vast logs and basalt rock, he saw the California Building which launched the Mission Revival style. Although this style was rooted in the Southwest, Cutter could not resist experimenting with it. While the California missions were heavy and earthbound, the Wakefield house expresses a light and playful character.
