Last fall, with the National Trust for Historic Preservation Conference held here in town, Spokane Preservation Advocates organized a special tour of the impressive South Hill homes on Sumner Avenue and Cliff Drive. This year, the tour explores a less-traveled area of historic significance: Millwood. The self-guided tour begins on North Marguerite Road and includes the Rosebush House, a unique example of the cottage-inspired French eclectic style built in 1923 for the general manager of the Inland Empire Paper Company, now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The ticket price gets you the tour brochure with a map of the locations and information about each home.
