Cole, 925 Hood Street NE, (LL)

From 1932 to 1942 this was the home of Charles A. and Bessie Cole. Mr. Cole was the Chief of Plant Industry for the State Department of Forestry. A later owner was Robert L. Shinn, who lived here with his wife Lenora. This house was originally sited at 715 Summer Street, just north of Mill Creek, and was one of several houses in this area purchased by the State of Oregon and used for office space before that site was needed for the construction of the Oregon Archives. The house was moved to its present location and sold to a private party in 1988.
