Notes
Survey number HABS OR-109
Building/structure dates: 1892 initial construction
Significance: This house, one of the last -- and certainly the largest and most pretentious -- to be built in Jacksonville, was constructed on the north side of town for prominent merchant Jeremiah Nunan and his wife between 1891-92. Unlike most of the other buildings in Jacksonville, the Nunan house was designed by an architect -- George Franklin Barber of Knoxville, Tennessee. Barber's plans were selected from his architectural pattern book-catalog, "The Cottage Souvenir." The second edition of 1892 advertised that "this house was erected from our plans at Taylorville, Ill., and Jacksonville, Oregon." Although the actual cost of construction is unknown, the advertisement placed the cost of executing this plan at between $6,000 and $7,500. H.F. Wood of Jacksonville was the builder. The house is now owned and occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Dunlap.
