George And Elizabeth Soverns House
George Soverns came to Oregon in 1852 and settled in the Riverview district south of Junction City. There he acquired a donation land claim and built a large two story farm house. After he sold his homestead in the 1880's he retired to this first period Gothic style cottage which stood on the northeast corner of 5th and Olive, which is now approximately where the parking lot for Central Blueprint is today.
