Note
"Description: This two and one-half story, wood frame residence has a square plan and fronts onto NW Glisan Street. It has a hip roof with deep eaves, brackets, and supporting beams beneath the scrolled rafter ends. Gabled dormers are located on the north, west, and east facades. The dormers are embellished with decorative bargeboards and brackets. Wood shingle siding clads the exterior. The main entrance is located on the north facade. The entry is flanked by stone pilasters and has a wood door with an oval light. The porch has an open balustrade with panels and oval cut-outs, and a square roof supported by three columns. The predominant window type is one-over-one, double-hung wood sash. There is a partial above-grade basement and an internal brick chimney. Alterations include internal conversion to a multi-family residence in 1943. Significance: This property is associated with Amos N. King. King was the holder of one of the Donation Land Claims (DLC) in Northwest Portland. He was born in Ohio and came to Oregon in 1845, settling first in Forest Grove. In 1849, he purchased Daniel Lownsdale's DLC and tannery and settled in Portland. He remained a prominent businessman and land developer, residing in a house located south of the present Burnside Street. This building is considered to be contributing within the district as a good example of a Craftsman style residence and is therefore significant as part of the larger grouping of residential development that occurred in the Northwest neighborhood."
