Abstract or Summary
  • Block 1 of the Averill Addition played an important role in the early commercial development of Bandon, Oregon, a town located on Oregon's south coast. Retail establishments located on the block supplied the local residents with a variety of merchandise for the period of 1886-1914. During this period Bandon served as the export-import center for the Coquille River area. Ships maintained a regular schedule between Bandon and San Francisco, California, Bandon's primary trading partner. A fire in 1914 destroyed all but one major structure on Block 1 of the Averill Addition. Partially rebuilt, structures on the block were once again destroyed in a second fire in 1936, which ravaged the entire downtown district. Microfilmed copies of the Bandon Recorder, Bandon's first newspaper, provided first-hand accounts of events during the early years of Bandon's growth, and were supplemented by regional histories. Primary sources for this project included census reports, Coos County deed records, oral interviews, maps, and historic photographs. The purpose of this report is to explain Euro-American occupancy of Block 1 of the Averill Addition as a supplement to an archaeological investigation conducted on the block in 1988. A description of the historic artifacts recovered from Site 35CS43 (Block 1 of the Averill Addition) concludes the report and indicates the types of items that remained on the site after 100 years of Euro-American occupancy.
