McCullough, 465 Leffelle Street S, (LL)

Conde B. McCullough, the noted highway bridge architect, was owner of this English Arts and Crafts residence designed by Clarence Smith. McCullough favored the arch form for bridges, taking Oregon bridge building to a fine art. He designed 32 major arch bridges existing in Oregon and a prototype for a covered bridge which was used as a model for many of the covered bridges built in Oregon between 1905 and 1925. He died suddenly at his home in Salem in 1946.
