    Was once called Woolery House Bed and Breakfast. This has a Barber feel to it, maybe Chris will pop in to deny or confirm. Thought this Flickr photo was a nice view of the house on a brighter day.

    Love this house! The interior needs a little freshening up but it doesn’t look like a ton of work to bring this one around.

    Kelly, I too wondered if this might be a George F. Barber design? I was also wondering where Ione, Oregon is so I looked it up…pretty remote spot between The Dalles on the Columbia River and Pendleton and to the south of both. There is limited streetview, but not for this house. Population is less than 350-so best for someone who loves to get away from it all yet still live in an old house. A few other early 1900’s homes were visible in streetview but none as grand as this one.

    I have the exact same kitchen sink… although the one seen here is in better shape.

      We have the same one too! I noticed that right away, our house is very old as well, so I found it funny that his old house had one too. I think the whole sink/cupboard thing was one big unit you could just buy and install. Probably a cheap fix from the early 60’s. (Thats what our cabinets underneath appear to be anyways, the sink could be newer.) I know that our kitchen setup has been there since the early seventies. Time for an update soon i think!

    I simply adore this house! Love the look of the exterior as well as the wood work inside. I really like the fireplace located in the kitchen. Love the stain glass windows and the stain glass on one of the room doors. Yes, a little refreshing and this would be a lovely home!

    This home must have been built by a wealthy wheat farmer and appears to be the grandest period structure in town.

    Pellet stove gone yes! But replaced with a good old fancy antique cast iron parlor model. The earth tone colors of the stained glass windows and transoms are well coordinated and very pleasing giving just that right amount of Victorian flair.
    I was trying to figure out the purpose of the half window that opens into a very small bathroom. Was the space it perhaps originally a closet that was converted into an indoor facility and a glazed half door retained to allow for light and ventilation?

    Although it looks like it might be original to the house the door placed half way up the stair flight is an odd arrangement as it would prevent heat from rising up to warm the second floor. The acoustic ceiling tiles and what appear to be some sort of later applied laminated wall panels in the stair would have to go.

    Bleak looking little town in the middle of wheat growing country somewhat isolated and with very little commerce visible although there is quaint little diner out of town on the main highway that appears to be a popular local gathering spot. Its interesting if you follow the Google Map street view from one end of Main street to the other the landscape changes from winter to summer views.

    Taxes are much higher that would be expected in a town this size as with the exception of the school there seems to be very little infrastructure to support.

      That could of been a way to retain heat during the winter. The family moves down and slips in a downstairs room while the upstairs is closed for the season.

    Sorry for the late response, somehow, I missed this one. Must be getting old. Anyway, I too agree that this house looks very Geo. F. Barber, however, there are also aspects of it that are very A-typical, as well. Most concerning to me is the main staircase. I have never seen such a closed off main stair, in any Barber design that I have been into. Perhaps it was altered fairly early on in its lifetime, or, maybe it was always designed that way. My gut feeling is that this is a Barber design, but I will see what I can come up with for documentation in support of that conclusion. Lots of potential here.

    Joseph Augustus Woolery (1859-1908), born in Missouri, lived for awhile in Texas and came to Oregon in 1884. He drove the stage, raised sheep and eventually opened a successful store. He owned 20,000 acres of land, was the first mayor of Ione, and donated sites for a park and town hall. Married Helen Vilott in 1888 and they had 4 daughters, Audrey Leoline, Floy Edna, Velmaletta and Josephine.

    A fine house that, as Tia said, needs “a little refreshing” is all.

    In the early 80’s I lived in Heppner, OR for a couple of years. Heppner is not too far from Ione and I had some friends who lived in another amazing old house in Ione…not much was happening when I lived there..I’ve moved away since then, but it sounds like there still isn’t much happening in Ione…however, what a great place to retire and what a nice old house to retire in!
