Snow in Eugene...........in 1875
Here is a photo of Elizabeth Stewart Lucky in the front of her home on the northeast corner of 10th and Pearl in about 1875. This house would later be moved and a larger house built for the Lucky family. Mr. Lucky was a jeweler in Eugene for many years. Elizabeth "Lizzie" Lucky, was a daughter of early Lane county settler Elias Stewart and sister to Martha Stewart Hendricks. In the distance can be seen the Peters-Listen-Wintermeyer house at its original location, on the southeast corner of 10th and Pearl. It was moved circa 1914 to 1611 Lincoln St., where it has been beautifully restored by its current owners.
