Meeker Mansion is a 17 room Italianate Victorian Mansion. Ezra was 60 years old and the house was built for he and his wife. Ezra Meeker tool his wife, Eliza Jane, along for a hop selling trip to England. She was presented to Queen Victoria and became smitten with some of the finer things in life. Ezra was quite contented with his log-cabin life, but agreed that his wife could have such a house if she wanted--and could pay for it. This is the house that Eliza Jane Meeker built and retained title to. The house was designed by Farrell and Darmer, Architects, of Tacoma, Washington. It took three years to build and was finished by 1890. The Meekers lived here about 20 years, until Mrs. Meeker died in 1909. After Mrs. Meeker died Mr. Meeker left the house.
