Daue House, 1095 Saginaw St. S, (NR)

This large two and one half story Craftsman bungalow was designed and built in 1907-8 by Alexander Daue. (See Scovell House) His nephew Elmer took over the family’s general foods store in 1929. The house retains much of its original organization and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. It was purchased by the Assistance League of Salem in 1987. The house now contains a shop and offices for other league charitable programs. See 1992 photograph of the house and 1953 photograph of the store.
