This grand, well-preserved residence was one of four neighboring houses--at 1106, 1112, 1118, and 1128 West 9th Avenue-- all in the Tudor Revival Style that were included in the Comstock-Shadle Spokane Register Historic District formed in 2006.

Building History

Captain James M. Comstock commissioned architect Willis Ritchie (1864-1931) to design this two-and-a-half floor Tudor Revival residence completed in 1910. Comstock was the Mayor of Spokane from 1899-1901.

Businessman Eugene Alexander Shadle (c. 1870-01/31/1944) and his wife, Josie Comstock Shadle (c. 1871-12/31/1954), (James Comstock's daughter) lived in this residence after 1920. They previously inhabited the dwelling next door, 1112 West 9th Avenue (known as the "Shadle-Comstock House"), from 1912-1920. The Shadle-Comstock Huse was also designed by Willis Ritchie, who gained fame in Spokane for designing the spectacular, Chateauesque Spokane County Courthouse finished in 1895.

Gerry and Patty Dicker later owned the house c. 2006.


The color scheme of the exterior half-timbering has been altered from cream colored and brown to red and brown.
