Building History

Seattle Times writer, Dorothy Brant Brazier, indicated in an article titled, "Joseph Cote Left Mark in Seattle," that Coté (1874-1957) was the designer of the Hibbard House. (See Dorothy Brant Brazier, "Joseph Cote Left Mark on Seattle," Seattle Times, 09/11/1963, p. 19.) Hibbard (born c. 1862 in IA), was the President of the Hibbard-Stewart Company, Incorporated, and the Montana Pullery, merchants dealing in hides, furs and wool. His house was completed before 1930.

Located at 2807 West Galer Street, the Hibbard Residence enjoyed spectacular views of Downtown Seattle and Elliott Bay. The US Census of 1930 indicated that architect Coté lodged in the house in 1930. The Hibbard Residence was illustrated in the 05/1922 issue of the Architect and Engineer, frontispiece.
