Westhome: Preserving an Arts and Crafts Gem – A Virtual Tour with Lawrence Kreisman

October 9, 2021

Join the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation for an exciting new (virtual) look at Westhome, one of Washington State’s most stunning historic estates, in this lecture and virtual tour by architectural historian Lawrence Kreisman.

Preserved much as it was in 1916 when completed, Westhome’s enormity of scale and complexity of construction has earned it the name “Congdon Castle.” Located in Yakima in Central Washington, Westhome is a superb and unique vestige of the American Arts and Crafts movement, preserved and stewarded through multiple generations of the original owners.

The 30,000-square-foot, stone-clad home was designed by Minneapolis architects Kenyon and Maine for Duluth attorney Chester Congdon as the centerpiece of his apple orchards. It features hand-hammered metal hinges, hardware, and lighting fixtures, leaded glass doors and windows, painted murals, various sizes and colors of brick and tile by important art tile manufacturers, and built-in or commissioned furniture by leading interior design firm William French of St. Paul, along with Gustav Stickley and Charles Limbert furniture. Remarkably preserved, from its lookout tower with sleeping porch down to its indoor swimming pool and the smallest details of kitchens and bathrooms, the property reflects the importance of private individuals’ commitments to its built legacy and respectful long-term stewardship.

Lawrence Kreisman, Hon. AIA Seattle, was Program Director of Historic Seattle for 20 years and Director of the Seattle Architecture Foundation tour program from 1990-2003. He is recognized for significant work in bringing public attention to design history, the Northwest’s architectural heritage, and its preservation through courses, tours, exhibitions, lectures, articles, and 11 books.
