Significance

This Craftsman house features a very prominent projecting half-timbered dormer on the front façade with a full-width shed dormer above it. This street is at the east edge of in Capitol Hill Division 5, one of the original Capitol Hill plats of James A. Moore, who gave the area its name. Because of the outstanding lake and mountain views, 22nd Avenue developed with many fine houses like this one. In 1900 Moore, who had already developed other Seattle neighborhoods, purchased and began platting 160 acres, roughly between 11th and 20th avenues, from Roy Street north to Galer. Before selling lots for construction, he graded and paved the streets (eliminating the dust that plagued many sections), installed sidewalks, water mains and sewer lines, and planned for street lights and telephone poles. Lots went on sale in 1901, heavily promoted to attract local business leaders as residents. The response was immediate. The quality infrastructure, convenient transportation, schools and other amenities proved to be very popular and the area was largely developed, with sizable, attractive houses, within only a few years.
