George and Phoebe Skinner Kinsey House
This charming Eastlake house once stood on the Northwest corner of 10th and Pearl, diagonally across the intersection from the original site of the Gothic styled Peters-Liston-Wintermeyer house, and across Pearl from the Lucky house. Built by George Kinsey who as a carpenter built many early Eugene homes, it stood until 1953 when it was torn torn for a parking lot. The site it now a multi-level parking garage and retail shops. While the Kinsey's owned many properties in Eugene as investments this house was their home for many years.
