Frank Dekum house in Portland Oregon c. 1864
Wonderful old photo of the Frank Dekum house. It was built in 1864 and was originally located on the entire block between 13th, 14th, Morrison, and Yamhill. Unknown architect. I do not know when this house was demolished but this block is completely filled with the 405 freeway today which opened in the late 60's early 70's depending on section. Most likely it was torn down before that as there are very few images of this house. In the background you can see the original Portland High School which was built in 1883.
