Notes
Survey number HABS OR-97
Building/structure dates: 1860 initial construction
Significance: The tin shop on the north side of California Street was originally part of a block known as "Kennedy's Row," where Matthew G. Kennedy had a tin shop until 1856. The original structure was evidently quite large, but subsequent reconstruction reduced the block to a series of independent store buildings. It served a number of purposes in addition to Kennedy's store. In 1856, the County Commissioners paid Kennedy $153.32 for office space rented by the County Auditor and Probate Judge. Before the jail was completed, the county rented "the Block House situated on the Lot in the rear of Kennedy's Block, to be used for the purposes of a jail at the rate of one hundred dollars per month payable in County Warrants as long as the Commissioners desire to keep it." Kennedy agreed to make alterations, including the laying of a floor of solid sleepers and the installation of six ring bolts attached to the floor.
