Highland Park's Historic Suffragist House Listed at $886,000

Built in the late 1800s, the restored residence was a haven for noteworthy women's rights pioneers

This grand Colonial Craftsman in Highland Park boasts a history almost as colorful as its vividly decorated interior. Built circa 1887, the Garvanza District residence is believed to have provided shelter for early women's rights activists such as Dr. Anna Howard Shaw and Cora Pond-Pope.

Sited on a .26-acre lot, the four-bedroom, two-bath house offers nine-foot ceilings, original Douglas fir floors, pocket doors, a bevy of built-ins, leaded glass windows, a sun-room, a library, an expansive covered porch, and a spacious basement. Listed at $886,000, the property will host an open house on Sunday, April 3 from noon till 4 p.m. featuring food, music, tours led by Heritage Square docents, and a presentation on the home's storied background and former residents by noted local historian Charles Fisher.
