Notes
Survey number HABS OR-74

Significance: Although it cannot be dated precisely, the Ben Drew Commission House is one of the oldest buildings now standing in Jacksonville. Although now a freestanding building, it was originally part of a row that included the offices of Cram, Rogers and Company -- later the site of the Express Saloon -- a building owned by grocer Charles Casey, and the offices of the Oregon Intelligencer, the predecessor of the Jacksonville Reveille Weekly and the Democratic Times.
