Note

2008 Washington - Gothic Vernacular House - Built circa 1890, there is very little known about the early history of this structure. The first resident was either Wesley Ames, a farmer, or George Fleeman, a carpenter. Charles Thorpe, a ship carpenter, and his wife Dora moved to the house in the 1910's. Later occupants include postal carrier Francis Taylor and his wife Gertrude. The Gothic vernacular house is virtually intact. reference #12 of College Hill Historic District in Eugene, Oregon. http://www.friendlyareaneighbors.org/map_walking.html
