HISTORY This historic home was built for prominent Tacoma residents John and Ella Snyder in 1905. Snyder opened the first lumber mill at the head of Commencement Bay in 1885. He was elected to the Tacoma City Council in 1892 and was instrumental in negotiating the city's purchase of the Tacoma Light and Water Company. The Snyders hired the architectural firm of Russell and Babcock in 1904 to design their house on N. 4th. Architect Ambrose Russell is best known for his work on the Tacoma Armory and the Governor's Mansion in Olympia. Given its storied history and intact architectural details, the Snyder House was added to the Tacoma Register of Historic Places in 2012.

RESIDENCE This impressive shingle style Craftsman is located in the heart of Tacoma's historic Stadium District. Features include an inviting covered front porch with stone columns, the original front door, leaded and stained glass windows, original fir wainscoting and trim, quarter sawn oak floors and vintage wallpaper. The front entry hall is flanked by a library on the right and a formal living room on the left with a beautiful fireplace with original Arts and Crafts tile surround. A large formal dining room is located beyond the entry with French doors to the rear yard. A side entry hall offers access to a half bath with original corner wall sink and oak-tanked toilet. The entry level also includes an eat-in kitchen and butler's pantry. Four bedrooms are located on the second floor along with a large bathroom featuring tile floors and an original claw foot tub. A fifth bedroom, a family room and a full bathroom with jetted soaking tub and separate shower are located on the third floor, which originally served as the servant quarters. The large unfinished basement offers an opportunity for future expansion. The property also includes a fenced yard with a deck and a two car garage off the alley.
