Experience one of Spokane's great traditions and
a cornerstone of Mother's Day weekend - the Northwest Museum of Arts &
Culture’s annual tour of historic homes and structures. This year the Museum
celebrates the tour’s 30th anniversary, and we are excited to
feature five wonderful homes located in Spokane’s historic Rockwood
Neighborhood. The homes are in a variety of architectural styles and built
dates. Some additionally are contributing properties to the Rockwood Historic
District, which was established in 1997.
Cresthill, Highland, Plateau, and Upper Terrace
are names which evoke images of natural geological landscapes. In the historic
Rockwood Neighborhood, these names refer to some of the wide, green, and
treelined streets in the area, that not only help beautify it, but guide the
way to an eclectic blend of historic homes from mansions to bungalows, most of
which were built during the first-half of the 20th century.
Tickets for the tour
are $15 for museum members and $20 for
non-members. They may be purchased on this website or by telephone or in person
at the museum until 5 pm, Friday, May 10, during normal museum
business hours 10 am to 5 pm, Tuesdays thru Sundays.
