Notes
Survey number HABS OR-174

Significance: The Joseph Main Street is a good example of a historic Eastern Oregon commercial district and social center that retains many of the characteristics of a small town that developed with the arrival of a railroad and declined after the Great Depression. It is eligible for the National Register under Criterion C, because it embodies many of the distinctive characteristics of a rural Oregon Main Street.
