Crawford House (1906) ... now we know where Hansel and Gretel live.


Historic Homes of Walla Walla

The core of this remarkable district graces the tree lined streets surrounding Whitman College. To view, photograph and document this collection of grand vintage homes, spanning innumerable architectural styles, was just too much for us to handle during our short visit.

Go ahead … call us "historic district wimps" if you like … but after a day of rubber necking our way down countless streets … we were ready to relax downtown with an Americano. This page contains just three of the homes that made an impression on us.


George Ludwigs House (1904) — This fine example of an early Bungalow/Craftsman was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Eighty wagonloads of rock from Mill Creek were used during construction. Click on the photo to see the detail of this unique Flemish Bond chimney.


Cornwell-McCausland House (1908) — This Neoclassical style house was built by a wealthy wheat rancher on a small city lot. Ranchers at that time didn't feel a need to own more land in town.
