Historic Hood River
Halloween at the Bartmess Home
We have a wonderful Halloween treat today. A descendent of Sam and Elda Bartmess shares this image. It bears a caption in the handwriting of Sam and Elda’s eldest son, saying â€œElda C. and Samuel E. Bartmess Halloween about 1894.â€ It may have been taken in the apartment above the Bartmess store on Oak between Third and Fourth Streets.
