Title

Smith-Buxton-Caples House, Forest Grove

Description

The Smith-Buxton-Caples House at 1938 16th Ave in Forest Grove, Oregon. According to a description in Oregon’s State Historic Sites Database: “The house is said to have been built by Irwin Smith around 1876. Smith was a partner with Mr. Buxton who later lived in the house with his family c. 1900. Buxton’s daughter, Rena Buxton, married a Mr. Caples and continued to live in the house.” This photograph was taken later, possibly in the 1900s-1920s. The house is square, with bay windows and a hipped roofline. Dark trim with light accents set the upper portions of the bay windows apart. Everything is snow-covered, with snow piled at the base of the picket fence that surrounds the yard, and sitting on top of the fence posts and the house.
