Note
Constructed in 1927 in the South University Neighborhood, the Clarence and Ethel Boyer House was recently listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a striking example of the Georgian Colonial Revival style of architecture in Eugene. Although in a neighborhood with other Colonial Revival houses, the Boyer House embodies the Georgian Colonial Revival style with its accentuated front door, symmetrical brick facade, paired double-hung windows, steep roof, and tall chimneys. Supposedly reminiscent of the Governor’s Palace at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia, the Boyer House is an important architectural representation of the history of residential growth and construction in Eugene during the 1920s.
