GUIDED TOUR OF JOHN DAY & CANYON CITY CONTINUED





Muldrick-Cauble House
108 N. Washington, Canyon City

This is a later example of Flat Front Italianate architecture present in homes of this era. The house was built in 1882 for John and Jenny Muldrick and later inhabited by their daughter, Mabel, who was a school teacher in Canyon City for many years. The house is presently owned by Jim Cauble.



Knox-Spell House
314 E. Main, John Day

This is a bungalow style house built in 1915 by Zickler and Ingle with wood from the Charles McKrola mill. It was immediately bought by Theron Knox who was a long time John Day merchant. It is presently owned by Jim and Beth McKrola Spell. This style was popular from 1900 to 1925 and there are many examples in this area. This one is particularly attractive because of the Colonial Revival windows, second story balcony, exposed beams and full length porch on the front elevation. It also has a one story bay window on the west elevation.



Apartment House
111 S. Canyon Blvd., John Day

Built in 1910, the IXL Boarding House [or Kein House as it was later known] still stands as an apartment house today, although in a different location. When it was built, its front elevation faced north and the building was located where the present Mini Market is now. It is in the Colonial Revival style and has the decorative shingles found in many of the older homes in this area. It is presently owned by Terry Ritner.



Hill-Gibson House
175 N. Canyon Blvd., John Day

Originally built as a residence, this house has been used as medical and dental offices for many years. It is a two story T-shaped house in the late Gothic Revival style and was built in 1900. Dr. George Gibson presently uses the first floor for his dental practice and rents the second floor as an apartment.
