Historic Hood River
Sometime around 1905 the Laraways picked up their life in apple country of Iowa and moved to apple country Oregon. They left this handsome home and moved to their home on Front Street in Hood River. W.F. Laraway left his jewelry and watch making business in downtown Glenwood to open a jewelry and watch making business on Oak Street. Does anyone know why they decided to make the move?
While you ponder that question, we can enjoy the extraordinary craftsmanship in this house.
And while I don’t usually link to commercial sites, it turns out this house still exists and we can see all sorts of interior detail at this realtor site!
