Built By: Year Built: 1906 ?

Plat: South Seattle Addition, Block: 9, Lots: 1-6

This building’s general appearance suggests that it has also been altered considerably. It was formerly considered part of a complex of buildings with the address “4001 7th Avenue South,” and is now part of a complex generally described under the address 4025 7th Ave S.  In general, it seems to have once functioned as an addition to the masonry building to the east. It may date from 1906, although evidence is not entirely conclusive. A small plan on the King County Tax Assessor’s record card, as well as a photo, also suggest that it was at the site at least by 1936.


This is a two-story frame building, sited along Andover St to the west of a two-story brick building, located on the corner of 7th Ave South and Andover St.  This building has an approximate footprint of 40 feet by 70 feet. The building exterior is characterized by wood siding, as well multi-pane double-hung windows at the second level of its longer elevation along Andover Street and on its west elevation. While the building has a flat roof and parapet, its west elevation has a low-pitched gable shape. The west elevation also has a small wooden porch with a pitched roof, which looks like a later addition.
