A Grand Edifice on Grand Avenue

Astoria, Oregon ~ January 23, 2010

This grand Victorian building stands at the corner of Grand Avenue and 14th Street. The fire escapes that resemble decks could be seen on the right in yesterday's post. Here it is from Grand Avenue.

This is from the corner of Grand and 14th.

As I recall, Tom Geraghty built those fire escapes.

A grand edifice, indeed! Wow! I'm guessing that is not a single-family home, but an apartment building now.

That place is HUGE! Is it apartments now or still a single-family home. Must be fun to live there.

We bought the building in 2002. It is an apartment building with studios and one bedrooms. 12 apartments total. It is just a neat building and we have the best tenants! It was built in the late 1890's and converted to apartments in the 1920's which is when they added the 3rd floor.

A gorgeous building... deserving to have the best tenants!

Tidbit of info--This was the former residence of Samuel Elmore and his family. Samuel Elmore was one of the "Salmon Kings" who made a fortune as a cannery owner here in Astoria in the late 1800's. From the looks of this building now, and comparing it with the picture I have seen, which was taken in 1899, this building has had quite a few additions over the years. Wonderful that it is still standing and being put to good use.
