Hinges/Kimball, 1075 Capitol Street NE, (LL)

This 1926 Bungalow-Colonial Revival house was originally located in “Piety Hill”, the residential area of four blocks that was transformed into the North Capitol Mall between 1937-57. The Kimball House, as it was known, was located at the corner of Summer and Chemeketa. Before the Kimballs, the house was occupied by the Hinges family. The daughter, Hallie Parrish Hinges (1885-1950), was a noted vocalist in Salem, “The Oregon Nightingale”. Her mother was the daughter of Josiah Parrish, a Salem pioneer.
The house was first moved to 735 Capitol St. and was used as state offices. When the state required that property for the expansion of the North Capitol Mall in the 1980s, this Local Landmark was moved to the present location and is now owned privately. Additional photograph and information.
