Victorian Mansions of the Old Northend
Our tour will begin at the Jewett Mansion, 1515 N. Cascade Avenue. The Jewett Mansion was constructed in 1902 for William K. and Patty Jewett. The Mediterranean structure displays Italian Renaissance characteristics, and has marble fireplaces and parquet floors inside. It is currently owned by First Lutheran Church and is used for their activities. We continue our tour at the Sharp Mansion, 1600 N. Cascade Ave., originally built in 1913 for Arthur G. and Louise Sharp. This magnificent home is an eclectic blend of Mediterranean and Craftsman styles with Jacobean details. The inside features fireplaces with Van Briggle tiles, a billiard room, and a large second-story porch.
We will end our evening at the Hager House, 1308 N. Cascade Ave. The Hager House was built in 1905 for Wilford M. and Clarisa Hager. The mansion’s buff-colored bricks were hauled from Pennsylvania, where the Hager’s were from. The original slate roof came from Vermont. The house contains oak hardwood floors in the public rooms, and maple flooring in the kitchen.
