Preservation project seeks volunteers

Spokane Preservation Advocates will have a “Doing It” project from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday at the Lindsley-Larsen Estate, 2314 S. Altamont Blvd.

The Lindsley-Larsen Estate is one of the few remaining, undivided, multi-acre residential estates built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Spokane. The property includes the main house, a carriage house/garage, a chauffeur’s cottage and garage addition, and landscaped grounds and garden features.

The estate, built in 1914, was designed by architect C. Harvey Smith, and is an excellent example of the Colonial Revival style.

Volunteers will be working outside in the yard. Wear your work/painting clothes. A light breakfast will be furnished, and lunch will be provided. Call Ann Cronkhite at 747-7239 to RSVP.

Spokane Preservation Advocates quarterly membership meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at 734 E. 23rd Ave.
