History of Green Gable Estate
Built in 1909 by Clarinda Green and Rowland Smith on homestead land owned by Clarinda’s parents William & Mary Green. The home remained a private residence until it was sold to the Upper Columbia Medical Missionary and Benevolent Association. For the following thirty years the residence served as a home to nurses working at the Walla Walla General Hospital. In 1990 Jim and Margaret Buchan purchased and meticulously refurbished the estate and converted it to the Green Gables Inn.
