    The National Register report gives build dates of 1880 & 1903.

    I wonder if the 1903 build date was possibly when the 2nd floor was added? It looks very squatty on the exterior, and it the full 2nd floor ceiling height does go into the attic space.

      Actually, interestingly, I didn’t think of that. Some of the doors on the first floor are squat. I wonder if the entire house was reworked and then they added the stairs in and raised some of the doors. I was curious why the smaller doorway going from the hall into the dining room and one from the back parlor into the kitchen… seems inconsistent with the rest. The stairs and columns in the front back room could be 1903 as well.

      I live about 20 miles from here, and can, perhaps, give some insight into your question about the 2nd floor. In Oregon anything that could have been called an “attic” was not taxed as square footage. The law was very loosely written, and even very expensive homes often had “a half story” – as you see here – in order to save on taxes. Even today you see the attic law misused in the most hilarious ways. I suspect the staircase and 2nd floor configuration are original to the house, although one cannot be positive without doing some old house forensics.

    Ooooh. Hello there!
    I’m trying to see if there are any ghost markings between the front and back rooms that may have had a fretwork or rail. I wish this had a virtual tour.
    I like the kitchen in this house. Those cabinets are nice.

    I’m sad someone removed the doors into the kitchen and from the hallway into the dining room. I’d have to re-install those and hopefully they are in the attic or basement and not discarded or ruined. For reasons historically and personally. I hate kitchen noises and smells. If something burns or the sound of a dishwasher running… yuck.

    Love that staircase. I’d also remove the ill-fitted french doors and transom which were probably installed a few years later judging by the wood color and quirky behavior.

  4. The dual two-tone exterior color scheme is nice.

      It’s nice to see people treat changing exterior textures with color. I always like the two body color look and very era appropriate.
