Simon Benson House

I love finding out interesting tidbits about something I’m sketching. The Simon Benson House, built around 1900, was originally situated on 11th and Clay but in 2000 it was restored and moved to the University of Portland campus. I only sketched the portico but the rest of the building is very ornate so you can imagine what moving it might have been like. There are a few photos on Flickr of the whole house on a flatbed truck.
