King County Landmarks: Neighbors-Bennett House (1904), Fall City
Address: 4317 337th Place SE, Fall City. Built in 1904 by Fall City resident Emerson Neighbors, the house is the best local expression of Queen Anne vernacular architecture in the community. The home's most notable features are the high front gable created by a steeply pitched roof and the ornamented full width front porch. The upper half of the gable is clad with fishscale shingles, with a center diamond shape window. The low-pitched hip roof is supported by turned wooden posts. Band-sawn brackets on each post connect to a frieze of circular ornaments. The home's extensive flower and vegetable gardens, lovingly maintained by the present owner, recall the self-sufficiency of rural households in earlier times.
