Rudolph and Augusta Seiler House, Oregon City, Oregon

This Queen Anne style house occupies a large double lot at the corner of Madison and 3rd Street. It has a steep gable roof with rakeboards and a molding trim. The exterior surface material is a channel siding with cornerboards. Vertical siding is used for the skirting around the house. The watertable and cap still exist, but have begun to deteriorate. Most of the windows are 1/1 double-hung surrounded by a simple board trim and many have fixed metal storm windows. Decorative features on this house include chamferred corners with pendants (not originals), fancy porch brackets, and a spindle rail in the gable. The house has an L-shaped plan and sits on a post and beam foundation. The property is surrounded by a picket fence. In the northwest corner of the backyard is a small outbuilding that has wood drop siding, cornerboards, and an old metal roof ridge. There is also a large apple tree in the yard. The 1982 survey notes that the single story porches and single story gabled wing are additions. If this is true, they appear to be very early additions.

Statement of Significance: Rudolph and August Seiler purchased two lots in 1895 and built their house shortly thereafter. Mr. Seiler was a German emigrant who worked in the Oregon City mills.

Judge Harvey Cross historic Italianate Victorian house, Oregon City Oregon

This large two story house sits under a front gable roof that is ornamented by a wide frieze and rake board with scroll cut brackets placed close together, giving the house an Italianate feel. This feeling is accentuated by the segmentally arched 1/1 double-hung wood sash windows throughout the house. The windows feature wide trim with decorative edge molding and scroll cut ornament above the second floor windows. The house is clad with drop siding with blocks at the corners to simulate quoins. A full width porch runs across the east facade with a second floor balcony supported by a series of tapered square columns set on concrete piers. A simple balustrade encircles the porch, which also contains an octagonal bay near the south end of the facade. A second octagonal bay is located on the south side of the house, covered by a shallow hip roof. A large brick chimney is located on the south wall of the house, east of the octagonal bay. A basalt retaining wall faces Washington Street on the east side of the lot.

The c.1888 Judge Harvey Cross House was constructed at another location and moved to this site sometime between 1911 and 1925. Cross was a prominent local and state politician and community leader.
