Harris/Graber, 2145 Market Street NE, (LL)

This 1904 house was built on a part of the John Baker Donation Land Claim; a later purchase by the Harrises increased their farm to 20 acres extending to the fairgrounds. Mr. Harris was one of the first farmers to raise Angora goats. The house was built using the plan of a house the family had in Idaho. After the deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Harris, the house became the home of their daughter, Minnie, and her husband Emil Graber. Mrs. Graber continued to live in the house into the 1950s.
