The renowned Berkeley, CA, architect John Galen Howard designed the State of New York's Pavilion at the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition of 1909.

Building History

After the conclusion of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition (AYPE) in 1909, this exhibition building was renovated to suit the needs of the University of Washington's President. After the dismissal of President Suzzallo in 1926, the house was vacated. After him, it was turned over to the School of Music for its use. (See "Mystery Mansion," Columns, March 2004,Accessed 10/06/2013.)

Building Notes

This cross-gabled pavilion had Colonial Revival Style decorative features, including a Palladian window over the front door.


Alterations were made to the pavilion when it became the UW President's personal residence.


The New York Pavilion was torn down in 1950.
