This fantastic wedding cake of a house was built by Mark Bailey, a professor of mathematics at the U of O, on the northwest corner of Broadway and High in about 1876. It was later owned by Senator Robert Booth who's family lived in the house until it was purchased by the First Baptist church in the mid 1920's as the site for a new sanctuary. That church building now houses the John G. Shedd Institute for the performing Arts.
