Built in 1869 in Snohomish for
John Harvey and family.

This is one of the first homes built in Snohomish...and it's still standing.
Location -Harvey Field-Snohomish, Wa.
On the Final Homestead Proof document, it states that before June of 1869, Mr. Harvey made settlement on said land and built a two-story house of lumber, about 35 feet square with a shingle roof, tongue and groove dressed floor, 2 doors, and “12 or 14” (as stated in the document) windows. A wood stove heated the house. The document states that it was a “well furnished and a comfortable house to live in.”
