Completed in 1890, this 17-room Italianate Victorian mansion was home to Washington legend Ezra Meeker (1830-1928) and his wife, Eliza Jane, for 20 years. Mrs. Meeker was the force behind the house, choosing its architects and decor. After his wife's death in 1909, Meeker ceased to live in the house. In subsequent years, it was used as a hospital, retirement home for Civil War widows and nursing home. In 1970 the Meeker Historical Society acquired it and has since been completing a slow restoration. Decorated in turn-of-the-century furnishings, the house is notable for its woodwork of various native woods and its hand-painted ceilings.
