  1. A Lewis and Clark Expositon administration building that now stands on the corner of 26th and Northrup looks very similar to this Masonic building. I wonder if they were identical.

  2. KL, I checked out the house at the location you mentioned (1209 NW 26TH AVE ) and I have to agree! Portland Maps also gives the date of construction as 1905.The hip roof, fenestration, and proportions are identical. I’m convinced that this is another surviving building from the L & C Expo. Nice detective work 🙂

  3. “Portland’s Slabtown” by Tracy J. Prince has great photos & information on this part of town. I got it from Multnomah County Library.
