Notes
Survey number HABS OR-66
Building/structure dates: 1881 initial construction
Significance: When the town of Jacksonville was first platted in 1852, the west line of James Cluggage's donation land claim ran through what would later be the City Hall lot -- thus dividing it into two parcels that would be bought and sold separately. The doubtful legality of the title notwithstanding, several businesses operated on the site between 1854 and 1868. In 1868 James Cluggage sold the part of the City Hall lot within his claim to Morris Mensor, who already owned the remaining ground. As was the case with many other lots in Jacksonville, the sale of land by Cluggage simply formalized what had become an established pattern of settlement and building in the town.
