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.
