If you are looking to live in a growing community that encompasses the charm of a historical district with modern amenities Browne’s Addition in Spokane Washington may be for you.
Browne’s addition is located west of Downtown and runs along the Spokane River. Browne’s addition was Spokane’s first prestigious refuge for the elite. Evidence of this can be found in the array of older mansions that cover this area, the most notable is the Patsy Clark Mansion which has been preserved and now is available for private catered events.
In recent years the Browne’s has had a resurgence of growth and has become a affordable and desirable place to live in Spokane with a variety of different housing options. In 2001 The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture finished a privately funded remodel and is home to several art collections and traveling exhibits. In 2007 several new units of housing were built to keep pace with demand for first time home buyers, young professionals and family’s looking to relocate to a quiet family friendly neighborhood. Before the new construction housing was mostly limited mansions that had been converted into rental properties.
The area has become a mecca for festivals like the popular Elk Fest, and in recent years has seen a surge of small sustainable local business. The Elk Public House one of the first restaurants to open in the Browne’s Addition was a major contributor to the cultural growth of the area. Opening its doors in 1999 the Elk also boasts what is widely considered the best patio dining in the city, and feels that “Every neighborhood should be so lucky.” Other great local restaurants include Italia Trattoria (One of the best Italian restaurants in Spokane), Pacific Ave Pizza (Great slices at reasonable prices), Café Marron, Cannon Coffee, and the El Que (A great micro-bar with a unreasonable selection of tequila).
Another reason Browne’s Addition is so attractive is that it is so accessible. Browne’s is rated only second to Downtown Spokane as the most walkable neighborhood in the city. This means that a large percentage of daily errands can be accomplished by walking. In fact Browne’s Addition has its own walking tour that guides you by several historical mansions, the Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) and Coeur D’Alene Park.
Browne’s Addition is a great neighborhood with several features that anyone can enjoy and utilize. As Spokane’s Downtown expands outward this area is continually evolving and growing into a affordable and popular community.
