This 1869 Gothic style residence was originally constructed at 862 Liberty Street NE by William L. Wade, owner of a dry goods store on the same block at 888 N. Liberty Street. (See 1971 photograph.) The house was later occupied by his son, Murray Wade, a well-known newspaper cartoonist in California and Oregon and publisher of the Oregon Magazine for 45 years. It was moved to John Street by owners Mr. and Mrs Richard Neuman.
