My drive home from work everyday takes me by an old brick house on Hawthorne Avenue, just out of downtown Bend on the entrance to the parkway. What’s notable about this house is that it’s obviously old—one of those old, pre-War homes that has ivy growing on it and just oozes atmosphere and looks like it should be on a register of historic places somewhere—and for a long time I’ve been meaning to look up its address online and see what pops up.
Turns out it is a designated historic resource: the A.C. Lucas House, built in 1910, the first brick house in Bend. Cool.
Here’s some of the links I dug up while researching the Lucas House:
- PDF: City of Bend Designated Historic and Cultural Resources
- Deschutes County Landmarks
- Bend Area General Plan, Chapter 3
Okay, so not the most exciting of links. I can live with that.
