Craig's Hill in Ellensburg Washington

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Kittitas Valley Realty

Craig's Hill in Ellensburg Washington is a wonderful neighborhood to drive through on a summer drive, or in which to spend a lifetime living in one of the classic homes which grace Craig's Hill.  I want to take you on a picture tour of some of the outstanding homes and interesting features on Craig's Hill.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

Craig's Hill is considered to be the area bordered by 1st Avenue to the south, Chestnut Street to the west the Ellensburg Rodeo Grounds to the north and some open space land which makes up the border to the east.


Legend has it that this was to be the Governor's Mansion at one point.  Ellensburg had been slated to become the capital of Washington.  Olympia ultimately became the capital and Ellensburg became home to Central Washington State College, which is now Central Washington University. "The castle" as it is known to Ellensburg residents is located on the corner of Chestnut and 3rd. Ave in Ellensburg.

You will find varing styles of arcitecture in the Craig's Hill neighborhood.  You can choose a favorite, or just enjoy them all.

Pictured above: This lovely home is very well taken care of by the proud owners. It is near the entrance to Reed Park on Craig's Hill

Pictured above is the entrance to Reed Park which is at the top of Craig's Hill.  Reed Park is a City of Ellensburg Park where you can go and enjoy spending some time with a book or take in the grand view overlooking the Ellensburg Rodeo grounds.

There is a parking area at the top of Craig's Hill from which you can look down on the Ellensburg Rodeo grounds.  Lots of folks crowd the area at Rodeo time to catch a peak at the show.

Pictured above: Also at the top of Craig's Hill is the American Legion Hall.  Members use the legion hall for social gatherings and events.  The view from the windows on the far side of the building look directly down at the Ellensburg Rodeo grounds.

Pictured above: It makes perfect sence that the 4,000,000 gallon City of Ellensburg water tower would be placed on the tallest hill in Ellensburg, and that is what you will find at the top of Craig's Hill.

Pictured above: Here is another of the stately homes on Craig's Hill.  Landmark homes like this are heirlooms to Ellensburg and the residents who live here.

Pictured above: This classic home has both charm and beauty.  The landscape in this established neighborhood is mature and gorgeous.


Everywhere you travel in the Craig's Hill neighborhood you will find well manicured, mature, beautiful landscape.  It speaks clearly about what a great neighborhood Craig's Hill is.

Pictured above: The City of Ellensburg constructed a wooden stairway to make access between the Ellensburg Rodeo grounds area and the elevated area of Craig's Hill.  I think it was a worthwhile project and I have enjoyed climbing these steps on many occasions.

Picture above: There are many homes which are more contemporary in nature on Craig's Hill.  You can't deny that this home is easy on the eye.

Pictured above: If you just were to consider the beautiful landscape on this home is built on it would be great, but then add the manor and it is really spectacular.
