J.M. Shelley House Circa 1910
James M. Shelley was the owner of the Eugene Mill and Elevator Company (grain milling and storage) and in 1907 started construction of this beautiful Craftsman style home at was then 214 E. 11th Ave. (S.E. corner of E 11th and Pearl). I have no information as to when this fantastic house was torn down but a very plain, mid-century office building has stood on the site since at least the early 1960's. The house just east of the Shelley house was the home of Millard F. Griggs. I will post photos of the Griggs home tomorrow.
