Located in Spokane’s historic district, Browne’s Addition, and next to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, this historic house was donated by the Campbell family who constructed it in 1898 (10 years after the great fire of Spokane) and cost $24,000 to build. But it was not the most expensive home in Browne’s Addition at the time. Families will enjoy the guided tour of the historic home, which shows both the servant’s side and the Campbell’s side of the home. The ladies’ tea room and men’s card room (also known as a man cave), plus the kitchen and laundry room where the servants worked are interesting to see and hear the stories of the past.
During Christmas time, families are invited to bake and decorate cookies at the house and beware around Halloween time, because haunted tours may have some nervous about venturing through the dimly-lit home. Kids are also encouraged to get involved and play dress up with some of the older clothes that can be found in a trunk upstairs. This may be an old home, but all ages will enjoy a visit.
Noon, 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and Sunday. Saturdays offer an open-house format from noon to 4 p.m.
Admission to the house is included in your Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture fee.
