Tour the Symphony House, possibly the oldest home on Mercer Island



Now through November 22, members of the public are invited to tour what is possibly Mercer Island's old house - the Symphony House.


Built in 1910, the 6,000-square-foot home was home to millionaire D.B. McMahons in the area that used to be called 'East Seattle' - now known as Mercer Island.


For context, the home is older than the Smith Tower, and was being built when Thomas Edison visited Seattle.


Sometimes called the "Castle" by islanders, the house has had many owners. It's been a pre-school, a beauty salon, and host to the Seattle Symphony - where it got it's name.


What will it be next? While tours for the public are open, the home will be simultaneously be listed for sale in the MLS by JayMarc Homes.


Tours for the public will be open through Nov. 22 from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily. JayMarc asks that anyone who is interested in touring to please bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Mercer Island Food Pantry.
