John P. and Mary Kiggins House

 

     

The house retains a high degree of integrity. It is a 2.5 story, Craftsman style home with narrow wooden bevel siding, a painted metal tile roof and a front gable with Tudor false half-timbering set in stucco.

John P. Kiggins
The Kiggins House is significant primarily through its association with one of the most dynamic and successful entrepreneurs, public office-holders and local proponents of growth in Vancouver’s history. John Phillip Kiggins, after discharge from the Army at Fort Vancouver, launched numerous successful businesses, but he is best remembered for construction and operation of movie theaters, one of which remains in operation. He was also a guiding force in the early years of the Fort Vancouver Restoration Committee.
