The DeGuire-Ludowitzki House and the Louise Adams House of Silverton, and a Portland structure, the C. Hunt Lewis and Gertrude McClintock House, are among Oregon’s latest entries in the National Register of Historic Places.

The DeGuire-Ludowitzki House, built about 1907, is a notable example of a modest Colonial Revival-style residence in the foursquare form. Charles Francis DeGuire, who was the son of one of Silverton’s established families, constructed the home. He later sold the residence to German immigrant and local builder John Ludowitzki and his wife Mary. The house remained in the Ludowitzki family after their death until 1938. Foursquare homes are generally two stories tall with four relatively equally sized rooms on each floor arranged around an entry and stair. A flexible house type, Foursquare residences could exhibit a number of styles, including Colonial Revival, which drew inspiration from classical architecture. The DeGuire-Ludowitzki House exhibits the style though the symmetrical placement of windows and doors with decorative trim, round wood Doric columns supporting the wrap-around porch, corner boards, and wide fascia at the roofline.

Built in 1924, the Louise Adams House is a modest Craftsman-style home, typical of many residences constructed during the period, yet notable for its striking octagonal porch. An American style developed in California, Craftsman-style homes characteristically feature low-pitch roofs with broad roof overhangs supported by decorative bracing with exposed rafter ends; multi-light windows; decorative porches; and open interior floor plans. Prominent lawyer, businessman, and politician Louis J. Adams had the building and another on an adjacent lot built as rental homes, which he gifted to his daughter, Louise, after construction. Educated in Silverton, Spokane and New York schools, Louise worked in Silverton at the Coolidge and McClaine Bank as a bookkeeper before marrying newspaper lithographer Timothy Brownhill in 1933. Divorced in 1954, she lived in the house until her death in 1988.

The C. Hunt Lewis and Gertrude McClintock House is an outstanding example of the Tudor Revival style in the Jacobethan vein. Built in 1911 and located on the west side of the Willamette River in the Dunthorpe neighborhood, the structure exemplifies the style, including an asymmetrical floor plan; steep roof lines and multiple chimneys; brick, stucco, and half-timbering exterior wall surfaces; and multiple-light windows. Portland’s early Tudor-revival residences often had Craftsman style interior plans and finishes with Tudor style exteriors, while early Jacobethan style buildings were sometimes mixed with Classical details. Born in Portland and employed by the family-owned Security Savings and Trust Company and wholesale grocery business, Cicero Hunt Lewis, Jr. commissioned his brother, architect David C. Lewis, to design the residence. It is now among 584 historic properties listed on the National Register in Portland.

Oregon’s State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation recommended the building nominations at its October 2014 meeting. The two Silverton homes are among 15, and the Lewis home is among 584 historic properties now listed in the National Register. The National Park Service maintains the National Register under the authority of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966.
