Lamport, 590 Lower Ben Lomond Drive SE, (NR)

This expanded English Cottage style residence was designed by O. J. Fitch of Portland and included property developed for a tennis court and gardens. The Tudor revival details are typical of the inventive residential architecture of the 1920s. Frederick and Eleanor Rogers Lamport were leaders in Salem’s political, social and cultural life between the World Wars. See 1992 photograph.
