In 1928 this bungalow style house was designed by Clarence Smith for Hubert & Rose Stiff at 795 Winter Street. Mr. Stiff was the general manager of the H. L. Stiff Furniture Company.
The house was sold to Daniel & Edith Jarman in 1942; Mrs. Jarman continued to live there after her husband’s death until 1966. At that time the State of Oregon bought the property. It was the residence of Governor & Mrs. Tom McCall & later the residence of Governor & Mrs. Victor Atiyeh.
The house was moved to its present site south of Mill Creek when the North Capitol Mall expanded. It is in the North Capitol Mall Heritage park.
