The naming of Indian Wall

Managing Real Estate Broker with 206 909-7536 17900

Developer/Builder Martha Rose, president of Martha Rose Construction in Seattle, believes in adding art to her homes that art fitting to the history of site.

Rose's high-performance  City Cabins homes will be located at the new site know as Indian Wall in Seattle's Licton Springs neighborhood.  .

Licton Springs  has a rich and storied history

Licton Springs was once a healing center for Native Americans, who constructed sweat lodges and bathed in the mineral waters of the springs. After pioneer David Denny purchased the land surrounding Liction Springs in 1870 from the U.S. Government for $1.25 an acre he built a cabin near the springs, hundreds of settlers drove for miles to immerse themselves in the spring water and in the mud.

The spring’s site remained a picnic area until 1935, when E. A. Jensen bought the site and built a spa. Then thousands flocked to the springs to take the waters and dunk in the thermal baths. In 1960 Seattle voters approved the site as a park, and the City bought the springs in 1961

Across the street from Rose’s Licton Springs' building site at Indian Wall is a large mural of American Indians, Chief Joseph and Chief Seattle which the city of Seattle was named after. The Mural was painted by Andrew Morrison who is a full-blooded American Apache/Haida Indian for FREE as his gift to Seattle.  The homes will have this amazing view with views of Mountain Rainier in the Background.

Rose’s new high-performance homes  will have elements from this rich American Indian culture  added to each of the four houses being constructed.  For more information regarding the high-performance homes build by Martha Rose contact Adrian Willanger 206 909-7536.
