Building History

The John B. Allen Elementary School complex was composed of two buildings, a wood-frame one built in 1904, the other a brick-faced, reinforced concrete edifice erected in 1918. The Seattle Public School Board's Supervising Architect between 1902-1909, James Stephen (1858-1938), designed the 1904 building. Stephen designed 18 wood-frame school buildings for the Seattle system between 1902 and 1908.

Allen Elementary was closed and, in 2007, and later housed the Phinney Neighborhood Association.
