Oregon Real Estate

House Hunt: Old Canby Schoolhouse

House Hunt is the occasional post on cool (mostly historic) homes and commercial spaces for sale across Oregon. And no, I’m not a Realtor. 

Is it practical? Not really? More than one bedroom? Nope. More than one bath? Negative. Lots of space? It’s 960 square feet.

But, whoa, it’s pretty cool.

Built in 1875, everything has been replaced – new roof, siding, windows, mini-split, additional garage, insulation and “a period-appropriate interior remodel.”

This photo perfectly captures a moment in time, of Main Street, USA. When Americans could spend and shop locally and get all their goods on one street. Names like Mangus Variety, Monahan’s for Dads and Lad (great name) Parrish Rexall, cafe, and hardware store.
