EE Lytle Home, c1910

The E.E. Lytle home once stood on the southwest corner of Northwest 24th Avenue at Johnson Street. This great home is gone but it appears the two other homes seen here, its neighbor to the west and the one across Johnson street, are still with us.

  1. After Mr. Lytle relocated his family to an even larger residence in Irvington, this dignified house became a dormitory for the Hill Military Academy. When the military academy relocated to Rocky Butte, this house became a boarding house and was razed after years of gradual deterioration. House is attributed to architects Whidden & Lewis.

  2. The Columbia Southern Railroad up the Deschutes was known as “Lytle’s Folly:'s%20folly&pg=PA1919#v=onepage&q=lytle's%20folly&f=false
