Notes
Survey number HABS OR-90
Building/structure dates: 1860 initial construction
Significance: The lot that Kahler's office stands on has served as an office site for many years. In 1858 it was deeded to Dr. Lewis Ganung, who sold it to Paine Paige Prim -- lawyer, U.S. Prosecuting Attorney, and for many years the U.S. District Judge for the Fourth Judicial District of Southern Oregon. (Prim was also a delegate to the convention that drew up the Constitution of the State of Oregon.) ... A substantial increase in the value of the land between 1864 and 1868 suggests that a building might have been constructed between those years. The 1868 map of the town shows a larger building on the lot than that shown on the 1864 plat. In the late 1860s, William Hoffman had his office in the building. In the 1870s, it served a number of different purposes. In early 1870, C.C. Beekman renewed his insurance policy on the bank building, and the presence of a printing office north of his building was noted on the policy. In 1873, the policy renewal noted a frame building "occupied as a shoe shop."
