Inspired by Queen Annes

If you're curious about its history, the house was built in 1890 for Edwin Rayworth, a housepainter and wallpaper hanger. Later on it was home to a series of fishermen and longshoremen, who plied their trades on the nearby Willamette River. While the 1,731-square-foot house may not be as grand as the Queen Annes that inspired it, it has scaled-back versions of many of the same period details. The exterior features decorative porch brackets, spindlework, and gable ornaments. The interior has its original heart-pine floors and moldings. The house is in good shape and was lived in until just three years ago.

Shown: The exterior needs a fresh paint job, but the porch brackets and spindlework are in good condition.
