Wenatchee’s historic Wells House announces two Christmas Open House events on Sunday, November 30th and on Saturday, December 6th both from 2-4.
Enjoy refreshments and view traditional Christmas décor in this historic and landmark home located at the end of Nelson off 9th St. bordering the college campus.
The House was built in 1909 by pioneer promoter W. T. Clark and became known as “Clark’s Cobblestone Castle.” Mrs. Clark designed the house, including the leaded, stained-glass apple windows and the thick walls of hand-hewn stone from the Columbia River.
In 1919 A.Z. Wells purchased the house and resided there with his wife, Imogene, until 1949, when they agreed to deed their estate for the Wenatchee Junior College campus. In 1973 the house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Since then, community volunteers have spent thousands of hours repairing and maintaining the building.
The Wells House is an affiliate organization of the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center, which is dedicated to preserving the history and culture unique to the North Central Washington region.
