King County Landmarks: Entwistle House (1912), Carnation
Address: 32021 Entwistle Street, Carnation. The David and Martha Entwistle House was built in 1912 during a time of tremendous growth in the community of Tolt, now known as Carnation. Arrival of the Great Northern Railroad in 1910 and the Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget Sound Railroad in 1911 triggered the rapid development of the area’s agricultural and logging industries. David Entwistle was the son of Tolt pioneers James and Sarah Entwistle. The Entwistle house, built in the Craftsman style, has a recessed full-width front porch supported on piers built of river rock from the nearby Tolt River, a hipped roof with dormers, and diamond pane windows.
