The National Register has added two Spokane homes onto its list of historic places.
Harry and Catherine Bleeker’s house, at 1707 N. West Point Road, was completed in 1909 and is indicative of homes built during the eclectic period of the early 20th century, according to a news release from the Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. It was designed by architect C. Ferris White. Its original owners, the Bleekers, resided in the home for five years. Harry Bleeker rose to prominence as an early 20th century executive of the Washington Water Power Company. The home’s next owners were Dr. John and Claudia Cunningham.
William and Ella Warner’s house, at 2627 S. Manito Blvd., was completed in 1916. It is historically significant because it was designed by noted architect William Ballard and is an exceptional example of a Craftsman Bungalow style home, the news release said. The Warners lived in the house for 40 years. Williams was the freight and passenger agent for the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad Company.
