“I thought, ‘I could save the house,’” said Cleo Davis, an artist who lives just a few doors down.The Mayo house appealed to him because demolition and lost opportunities are a big part of his family’s story — and part of the African-American experience in this part of Portland.

The Morris Marks House was built in 1880 based on designs by architect Warren Heywood Williams. The mansion, commissioned by a Polish shoe merchant, was originally located at 1134 S.W. 12th Ave.. It was moved in two pieces at a cost of about $440,000 in September 2017 to a vacant lot near the Interstate 405 interchange at Southwest Broadway and Sixth Avenue.

“The only way to save the granary was this way — finding a new site and moving it there,” Drury said. “If they had taken the granary apart, they never would have been able to put it back together.” The crib construction inside the granary includes wood that has been interwoven, which created a very solid and stable structure, Drury said. “No one could have put this back together,” he said. “I am very happy to be a part of this (project) to save the granary.”

The 22,000-square-foot structure built in 1939 will be dismantled over the next 12 weeks and reassembled at another location in Kalispell. The Kalispell Lumber Co. is an historic local business, opening a mill on Fourth Avenue East north of the railroad tracks in 1904. The mill and lumber company later moved to its west-side location, and employed between 50 and 60 workers until the manufacturing facility closed in 1963. In 1979, Brad Wright purchased the facility and continued to operate the retail building-materials business for more than 30 years. Once he closed the doors to Wright’s Kalispell Lumber, Wright sought out opportunities for preserving the historic structure.
