WENATCHEE, WA.- Owners of the historic Horan House are asking the City of Wenatchee for permission to tear it down. The over-one hundred year old two-story home was built by Michael Horan on property that had been part of a 130-acre homestead of pioneer Samuel Miller at the confluence of the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers.
Its current owner, Nevio Tontini has applied for a permit to demolish the residence and its neighboring carriage house. The plans are to level the over-two acre property. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is required to undergo a State environmental assessment before the proposed demolition can go forward. Public comment on the plans are due Monday.
