Browne’s Addition

It’s Spokane’s oldest neighborhood. Browne’s Addition is a fine example of Spokane history and the result of some of the city’s earliest visionaries. Filled with stately Victorian mansions, small Arts & Crafts bungalows and mid-century apartment buildings, this neighborhood is now an energetic, artistic and eclectic area to experience.

Like many old neighborhoods, Browne’s Addition fell into disrepair due to neglect and disinterest. Like the visionaries who created it, a group formed in the 1980s to bring it back to life. These civic minded community members worked their magic and this neighborhood is now thriving.

Within walking distance of downtown Spokane, this neighborhood now has a handful of inventive restaurants, coffee shops, and public artwork. Inside the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture you’ll find rotating exhibits sure to pique the interest of any curious mind. Step back in time and experience what it’s like to live in 1900s Spokane opulence with a tour of the Campbell House. 

You’ll find something to explore for any discerning taste in Browne’s Addition.
