Duniway/Lachmund, 2430 State St. SE, (LL)

This 1908 Craftsman house was first owned by Willis S. Duniway and wife Alice. He was the son of Benjamin and Abigail Scott Duniway, early Oregon settlers. Abigail Scott Duniway was a pioneer advocate of women's suffrage. When the residences of “Piety Hill” were demolished for the construction of the North Capitol Mall (1937-57), this one was spared. Then the residence of former Mayor Louis Lachmund, it was moved to Willamette University to serve as residence of the president. It was later moved to its present location for offices and apartments. An earlier SHINE entry about this property is found here.
