Building History

The Seattle Daily Times noted the granting of a building permit for the Samuel Hyde House in 09/1909: “Permits were issued by the Building Department yesterday for the $25,000 three-story brick veneer apartment building to be erected at 1220-4 Jefferson Street by the Manhattan Building Co. for the Union Trust Co., and for Samuel Hyde’s new two-story brick veneer which is to be built at 3726 East Madison Street, at an estimated cost of $13,000 by Contractor James Murdock. Plans fro the apartment building were drawn by Thomas L. West and those for the Hyde residence by Bebb & Mendel.” (See “Notes about Building and Real Estate: $25,000 Apartments—$12,000 Residence,” Seattle Daily Times, 09/12/1909, p. 8.)
