Note
The 1904 June D. Drake House is recognized for Drake’s substantial accomplishments and service to the Silverton community and as a local example of a modest Free-Classic Queen Anne cottage. Drake was a regional award-winning photographer, the leading Silverton historian, organizer and first president of the Silverton Historical Society and Silverton Museum, and the driving force behind the establishment of Silver Falls State Park for more than 20 years, portions of the purchase of which he funded himself despite financial hardship. He was recognized for his effort by having one of the waterfalls in the park named for him, and recognized by the State of Oregon for his work as a historian with an award from the Oregon Historical Society and a seat on the board of the Oregon Centennial Commission. Throughout his life, Drake sought to promote the welfare of his community through the preservation of its natural beauty and cultural artifacts, resulting in the permanent establishment of local institutions and a popular state park which still define and shape Silverton today.
