“They built this house, but this house was down on the river,” said Tanya March, who claims to know the home’s history. “We know it was moved up the hill in 1904.” The home had been added to over the years, perhaps hiding any historical uniqueness.

On Feb. 22 the Bureau of Development Services received an application for demolition of the 1937 home. The owners were listed as John and Terrie Marshall, the applicant was Kevin Partain of Urban Visions and the contractor was Renaissance Custom Homes LLC. Renaissance Custom Homes LLC is registered in Lake Oswego to Randy Sebastian. There are a number of trees on the site. A demolition plan is not yet available in the public record, so their fate is unconfirmed.
