"Hayes Park" was the original name of this tract in Seattle's northern Ravenna neighborhood. There was also a "Hayes Park II" tract developed just before Workd War II.

Building History

This "Honeymoon Home" was built for an engaged couple, Frank Manford Shaw (1905-1977) and his fiancee, Ruth Elizabeth Wilson as a promotion of the Honeymoon Trail Committee of the Seattle Chamber of Commerce for the Seattle Home-Builders' Exposition of 1935. Because the north-east district of the city had the largest attendance at the exposition, the Shaws received the house as a prize. Samuel Andersen was the builder of the Honeymoon Home. J. Lister Holmes and Charles H. Alden were noted to have approved the plans drawn up by Thomas. The Hayes Park Tract, within which this house was located, was developed by A. Jack Baker and Samuel Hayes.

Building Notes

The 2,280-square-foot house was offered for sale at $649,950 in July 2006; it was set on a 4,508 square foot lot, had three bedrooms and one and three-quarters baths.
