Seattle Attractions--Exploring Capitol Hill
1409 East Prospect Avenue (adjacent to Volunteer Park)
Adjacent to the Water Tower entrance to Volunteer Park is the magnificent, neo-classical Parker/Fersen House at 1409 East Prospect Avenue. It was built in 1909. This 30 room mansion has seven fireplaces, five covered porches, Corinthian columns, and two ferocious dragons guarding the front entrance.
The Parker/Fersen House is one of our favorite homes in Seattle and it is one of the visual treats on Capitol Hill.
