DR. MABEL HARDENBROOK RESIDENCE c.1915 -- Statement of Significance: Though not the original owner, Dr. Mabel Hardenbrook was influential as a founder of the Buena Vista Improvement Club. The club originally met in members' homes but obtained property from the heirs of George Abernethy. The clubhouse was purchased and moved to its current site. The Buena Vista Club instigated many civic projects. Dr. Hardenbrook also started the Oregon City High School Band and the Stamp Club. Undoubtedly this house hasn't changed appreciably since Dr. Hardenbrook lived here. The house is a very good example of the bungalow style. For this reason, and for its association with Dr. Hardenbrook, the house has historical and architectural significance.
