This house used to sit near the corner of SW Main Street and SW 13th. That location is very close to the First Unitarian Church, so I used to see it often, coming and going from and to church. During that time, it seemed to go from minimally occupied, to unoccupied, and I crossed my fingers that it would survive as it has incredibly good bones.
As you may guess from this photo, it did! It was moved to a grand location where it overlooks the cars exiting 405. The Oregonian covered the move (because who doesn’t love a good house moving?) and you can read the September 30 story about the moving of the Morris Marks house by clicking this link.
I look forward to its restoration.
