Levi Walker House in Forest Grove, Oregon


Levi Walker House in Forest Grove, Oregon


The home of Levi Walker in Forest Grove, Oregon as it appeared in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Several people, presumably Walker Family members, are standing in the middle-ground of the image on the right; Levi Walker is probably the man sitting on the porch. The others pictured here may include his wife, Belle and their daughters, Elda and Leva. A note on a related copy of this photograph (FGLpic_00073) notes that the house stood on what is now 23rd Avenue between A and B Streets in Forest Grove.

Levi Walker was the son of Elkanah and Mary Richardson Walker, who came to the Pacific Northwest as missionaries in the 1830s. From the 1880s-1890s, Levi and his wife Belle taught at several government boarding schools for Native American children, including the Forest Grove Indian School, the Siletz Indian School, and Chemawa Indian School. This photograph may date from the 1880s, when their daughters were infants.
