Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Portland architectural firm of Whidden and Lewis designed many of the city's best-known buildings, including City Hall and the Multnomah County Courthouse. But while much is known of Whidden and Lewis's public work, relatively little has been written about the firm's substantial residential contributions. In this book, Portland architect and author Richard Marlitt examines more than fifty Whidden and Lewis houses built between 1889 and 1909, from grand Queen Anne mansions to stately Colonial Revival houses. He candidly comments on the exteriors of the houses and ventures inside several of them, detailing their rich interiors and fine furnishings — and introducing us to several of the Portlanders who lived in these remarkable homes.

Book News Annotation:

An examination of some fifty houses built between 1889 and 1909 from Queen Anne mansions to Colonial Revival houses. Includes comments on the exteriors end interiors of these homes. Many period photos.
