Landmarks: Cannon Hill 1926 Bungalow Retains Historic Charm

Jan 6th

1926 bungalow – The Elmer and Hester Hutsinpiller House at 3 W. 27th Ave. has the distinction of having been home to three generations of a single family. It also became the house that current owners Carol and Dennis Anderson decided they wanted to live in, even though it wasn’t for sale when they began looking for a new home.  They knew they wanted a cottage-style home in the Cannon Hill-Manito Park area of Spokane. So in 2000 they began driving around looking for houses in the neighborhood.

They admired the Hutsinpiller House 1926 bungalow, which had been built in 1926, gazing at it at least three times. And they eventually put a note on the screen door asking if the owner might consider selling. A big surprise came when removing linoleum flooring in the main floor bathroom. To reveal a terrazzo floor underneath, unique for a small-scale floor in what is considered a modest bungalow. And should the new upstairs bathroom ever require repair, a surprise awaits inside a wall.

Where the Andersons have put in a time capsule in the form of a quart-size canning jar containing the history of the house and information about them. The 1926 bungalow was built in 1926 with embellishments in the Craftsman style for J. Elmer Hutsinpiller, a clerk with the U.S. Railway Mail Service, and his wife, Hester. It cost $4,500. A year later they added a single-car garage at the back of the house for $300. Both structures are clad in variegated raked brick veneer, and the double-hung wood-sash windows are original.
