Publisher Comments:

Home owners, history and architecture buffs, and visitors to the Pacific Northwest will all find a treasure trove of information within these pages. With 300 photographs and illustrations, both historic and contemporary, this text provides a comprehensive overview of the city's major residential architectural styles, including Victorian, Craftsman, Tudor Revival, and Modern. The homes featured range from the showplaces of the wealthy to humble cottages and bungalows in residential neighborhoods. Beginning with a historical overview and continuing through descriptions of the 120 featured houses, organized by chronological era, this is the first-ever comprehensive guide to Seattle's historic homes. Checklists of houses by neighborhood and style make this useful for walking tours by residents and visitors alike. Anyone interested in preserving Seattle's architectural treasures will find this an essential resource. Classic Houses of Seattle is a vibrant portrait of the city's development, an important chapter in the story of American residential architecture.

Book News Annotation:

Filled with fascinating period photographs of Seattle houses from its earliest period, this slightly oversized (8.75x11.25"), heavily illustrated volume provides a careful catalog of Seattle's domestic architecture. Separate chapters are devoted to different styles and a concluding chapter offers guidelines for researching the history of one's Seattle home. The stories of individual houses make up the chapters, with a close description of their style and construction and information on the original owner, when known. A glossary of terms is provided. Swope, who has a degree in historic preservation, also teaches art and architectural history at Seattle Central Community College.
