Historic Name: Common Name:
Style: Queen Anne - Free Classic Neighborhood: Central Area
Built By: Year Built: 1901
This is a good, well-maintained example of Queen Anne – Free Classic design exhibiting a high degree of integrity.

This is one of approximately 2,200 houses that are still extant out of more than 5,000 that were built by the end of 1906 in Seattle’s Central Area, Eastlake, First Hill, Leschi, Madison Park, Madrona, and North Capitol Hill neighborhoods.

A complete permit history and record of ownership and occupation have not yet been prepared for this property; however, the house appears to have been owned by Sam Caluo from 1920 until at least 1937. Elder and Rosetta Williams acquired the house from Neta Morrow in 1992. Elder Williams sold the house to Jarl H. Priest and Brook A. Maple in 2002, who in turn sold it to James W. Longtin in 2006.
