The Houses of Clement Hodes
The top photo shows the first home of Clement Hodes which stood at the southeast corner of 8th and Lawrence. The house was an early structure, built in the Greek revival style, resembling the Christian House on east 12th. Clement Hodes owned a Saloon and Billard Parlor on Willamette St. It must have been a successful business as circa 1890 the original house was moved (location unknown) and this fine two story Italianate took its place. It appears the house stood until about 1930 when it was replaced with the apartment house that still stand on the site.
