Strahorn Pines - Spokane

In 1887 this home was built and occupied by J.J. Browne, the developer of Browne's Addition. Browne's Addition was Spokane's premier neighborhood at the time, and arguably retains that status today. The home sat atop a bluff with panoramic views of the Spokane River below. In 1900 the home was purchased by Robert and Carrie Strahorn. The three-story building was then completely remodeled by noted architect Kirtland Cutter into a twenty-room mansion with nine bathrooms and ten fireplaces. The first house in Spokane with steam heat, Strahorn Pines was also said to have featured a bowling alley. The house was accquired by the Eastern Washington Historical Society in 1970 and demolished in 1974 to make way for a new museum building.
