Abstract or Summary
  • The 109-year-old Porter house in Shedd, Oregon is one of few remaining, well-preserved examples of Rural Gothic architecture in the Willamette Valley. This study attempts to record its history: the economic circumstances which led the pioneering David Putnam Porter family to build this relatively large house, the family background, and information about the structure and its interior furnishings. Information gathered from official documents, circa publications, local museum collections, visual observation of the house, and interviews with Porter family members and selected Shedd area residents. The information was gathered towards the continued preservation and possible restoration of the house. Results of this study included minor structural changes in the living room, dining-kitchen, and scullery of the house to restore it to its circa 1874 condition. Recommendations and guidelines for choosing appropriate furnishings in the various rooms of the house were given based on the findings gathered in the study.
