Historic Hood River
Location? Location? Location?
Can anyone identify the location of this impressive farmhouse? This is a W.F. Laraway image. I don’t know the folds of the eastside hills well enough to pinpoint this spot. Has the farmhouse survived? So many of the old farmhouses were lost to fire.
Charlotte…..we need you!
Beautiful home. Looks like a well used road running through the middle. I wonder if those are strawberries on the hill behind the house.
It sure looks like a picture taken from one of the buttes off of East Side Road. There appears to be a road in the foreground which should help?
My first reaction was the Paul Keir house. Will have to ask one of his nieces.
I'm thinking the house is east off of Eastside drive. The pic was taken from Panorama Point. Google Maps gives a glimpse of the house from Eastside.
Good suggestions LWH and Norma. Looks like the Keir Ranch on Eastside. The Keir family founded Keir's Drug in 1905.
Here's LWH's find with an easier link:
It's a good match. The attic and 2nd story windows all match in location and number of panes. Good find! I think the address is 1025 Eastside Rd.
Checked with Jean & Joan yesterday and yes, that is the Paul Keir house.
Charlotte would certainly know. Todd – Wells Construction – not sure if Bernie was still active, did a complete remodel awhile back. We GORGOUS inside with a new kitchen and about a 12 foot long island. We painted the entire interior but ran from the exterior! We neither had the time or desire to tackle that. An outfit out of Portland came and stripped the whole thing, then just left it natural. Old cedar still battling the elements but looks cool…..rustic
