E. J. Roberts Mansion Spokane

 Of all of the buildings designed by grandfather Wm. J. Carpenter that I have been able to visit,  the Lowenberg-E. J. Roberts Mansion in Spokane is to me the most memorable. Click here.  This beautiful historic example of  Victorian Queen Anne style opulence has been faithfully preserved in 1890 condition. It is now a comfortable, friendly Bed and Breakfast Inn and should be on any tour of the up-scale Browne’s Addition section of Spokane. 

 Recognition of its historical significance is shared by other Carpenter Buildings in Spokane, including  the Miller Building (Hotel Russo), Couer D’ Alene Hotel (Milner Hotel), and the Currie residence. For a complete listing of Carpenter projects in Spokane click  here
