Treat House

Queen Anne & Lake Union

This 14-gabled house near the top of Queen Anne Hill was built in 1905 by Harry Whitney Treat, a friend of William F ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody. Treat also created Golden Gardens Park in northwest Ballard. After Treat's death in the 1920s, the building was converted into 15 apartments. Built in English arts-and-crafts style, it's worth admiring from the outside.
