Photographs and History of early Eugene Oregon structures and locations.
Friday, March 2, 2012
In my post earlier this week about the T.W. Harris house, I speculated that the heavily altered one story Victorian house that stands today on the northeast corner of 5th and Lawrence might be the old Harris house. Today I just happened to find a photo of that house simply labeled as standing on 5th, but with no other information other than at the time the photo was taken it housed 5th Avenue Electric. While greatly resembling the Harris house and being of the same time period and style it is mostly certainly not the home of Dr. Harris and his wife. While the brackets and bay window have been removed and the porch greatly altered, (not to mention the cinder block addition in the front yard that has for many years housed the Keystone Cafe) the house is easily recognizable as being the one in this photo.
