Heffley, 2365 Ellis Avenue NE, (D)

Heffley home on Garden Road circa 1911

Same house on Ellis street today

The Heffley family settled on a 100 acre farm just east of the Salem city limits between Garden Road (now Market Street) and “D” Street. Evidently the farming enterprise went well as Theodore built a fine home on the property before 1911. Due to development of homes in the area (probably in the 1950s), the house was moved to its present location and much changed. It’s height is diminished by the loss of the windowed basement and spacious porches along the front and right side have been removed.
