German Methodist Parsonage, 2981 D Street NE, (D)

This property was owned by R. P. Boise from the time it was platted until it was sold to the German Methodist Episcopal South Church for use as a parsonage in 1894. The church paid $500 for the property at 772 Winter Street, indicating that there was a dwelling on the property at that time. Norma and William Place lived here during the 1930s. In 1944 the church sold the property to Charles Warren, a carpenter. The State of Oregon purchased the property in 1977. The North Capitol Mall Office Building was constructed on that site. The house is now privately owned and is located on D Street. A photograph of this house and its neighbor, the Moon House, in their former location, is found here.
