History of the Lavin Hospitality Mansion
The historic residence where R.B. Patterson, founder of the Crescent Department Store, lived with his family was built in 1902 for $35,000. It was one of the most elaborate, expensive homes at that time with four stories, seven bedrooms, four fireplaces and nine bathrooms. It was constructed in the "basic box" style, but what makes it outstanding is the Mediterranean-influenced terra cotta decorative work around the windows. When Patterson died in 1924, the mansion was sold to Senator and Mrs. Dill in 1927. Senator Dill is best known for procuring funds and was instrumental in building the Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River. After World War II, 1947, the mansion was divided into 19 apartments for returning servicemen and their families. In 1976, Dr. Joseph Lavin bought it and began restoring the building, converting it into a professional office building. The original seven carriage houses were removed to make room for 42 parking spaces on the property. In 1986, Dr. Lavin's son, Stacey purchased the structure and continued to refurbish the mansion. Today the grounds of the 14,000 square foot mansion is adorned with 300 rose bushes, and its outer structure is comparable to its original state.
