Raleigh and Maude Peterson House c.1909

See More Historic Homes

For many years this home was identified as the Latta House, but more recent research through property records and newspaper reports of the time has shown that Raleigh and Maude Peterson bought the property from Maude Latta on July 24, 1909. Five weeks later Raleigh “has the basement put in and carpentry will follow”.

On 16 December, 1909 The Washington County News announced “Mr. and Mrs. Raleigh Peterson moved last week into their pretty new bungalow on Second Avenue, which was recently completed”. 

By 1920 Raleigh and Maude were living in Portland. The 1930 census shows Anna and John P. Linden living here. John died in 1934 and Anna continued to live there until 1954. Other names attached to the Peterson House are James V. Kyle (1960) and Elizabeth A. Posz (1960s).

Roger and Susan Nipp purchased this home in 1983 and have maintained the bungalow well for over three decades.
