Four Sumner residences have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Ryan House, 1228 Main Street. “ The home was built of cedar in 1875, and began as a small cabin with three rooms. The large upright part was added in 1885. The home exhibits a simplified version of the classical revival style, but has been dressed up with the addition of Gothic Revival detail and of an expansive verandah of typical late 19th century millwork. Heirs of Ryan donated the property for a library and a park in 1925. The site… houses the community’s museum." (Historic Sumner Walking Tour Guide).It is run by Sumner Historical Society.
Herbert Williams House, Private Residence. "This house was built in 1890 by Herbert Williams for his wife Lola. It exhibits design elements of both the Italianate and Queen Anne Styles of architecture and was lavishly detailed using a fortune obtained from the booming hops production." (Historic Sumner Walking Tour Guide). Herbert built the home to impress his new wife Lola, but she left him just as the hops boom went bust.
Sidney Williams House, Private Residence. It was constructed in the late 1800s by Herbert’s brother, Sidney, and is just an eighth of a mile away form Herbert’s. It was like Sidney’s large, with elements of both Italianate and Queen Anne Style of construction. With the hops bust, Sidney was forced to sell and moved into Sumner proper
Charles W. Orton House, Private Residence. The first Daffodil Dinner was housed in this home.
