Nunan House #1

March 3, 2015

Contrary to local lore, Jacksonville, Oregon’s famed 1892 Nunan House was not a kit house ordered from Sears, Roebuck & Company. Sear’s kit homes weren’t produced until 1908. The Nunan House plans were purchased directly from Tennessee architect George F. Barber’s “The Cottage Souvenir” catalog, hence its nickname, “the catalog house.” To learn more about the Nunan House and the Nunans, read the March 2015 Jacksonville Review article, “Pioneer Profiles: Jeremiah Nunan-An Irish Success Story.”
