"Description: This wood frame duplex has a rectilinear plan and fronts onto the north side of NW Hoyt Street. It is a two and one-half story structure with a concrete and stucco foundation and a gable roof with hip dormers and composition shingles. The porch has large, rectangular posts with a decorative head, a classic entablature, and pilasters. The beveled-glass entrance door is surrounded by six lights. The predominant window type is one-over-one, double-hung wood sash. Double-hinged, leaded-glass bay windows supported by brackets are located on the west side of the front elevation and on the west elevation of the first and second stories. Other decorative features include deep eaves with modillions, a full balcony over the porch, and two sets of French doors. At the rear of the house, vertical siding was added to the first story of the east elevation at an unknown date. Two solid doors were added, also at an unknown date. Significance: This house was once the residence of Harry Campion. A native of Portland, Campion was employed by the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company railroad. He advanced to the position of agent, and then to traveling auditor. In 1909, he became a superintendent for the Port of Portland and served as a successful and well-known purchasing agent for the port. Campion was a charter member of the Breakfast Club. He was also involved with the Purchasing Agents Association of Oregon and the Knights of Columbus. This building is considered to be contributing within the district as a good example of a Craftsman/Colonial Revival style residence and is therefore significant as part of the larger grouping of residential development that occurred in the Northwest Portland area."
