Residence in Forest Grove


This two story house on the northwest corner of 15th Avenue and Elm Street is known as the Barnes House and the Marble House and is in the Queen Anne Victorian style. This house, facing Elm Street, is somewhat narrow in the front but with a large gable on the left facing the front and a third story tower on the right it looks large. There is a roofed window bay on the first floor below the gable. The porch starts at the end of the gable and looks to go around to the right side of the house. The porch has its own roof. This view is from the northeast corner of the house showing the right side. On this side is another roofed window bay and a covered side back porch. There is another large gable on this side. A picket fence goes across the front of the house and down the right side. The sidewalk could be wood or concrete. The street is packed dirt.
