502 S. McLoughlin Blvd. - Maxwell Telford Residence c.1917

Statement of Significance: This house was built by Max Telford, who was co-owner of Telford-Champion, dry cleaners in Oregon City. He was the son of Maxwell Telford, an Oregon City Woolen Mill worker and Canemah property owner. The father, Maxwell, had a number of children, Max being the eldest. Max worked as an electrician, and for some time was employed in the Oregon City mill. His wife's name was Elsa. Max's maternal grandfather, John Harrisberger, owned a number of properties in Canemah. This house is one of just a few bungalows in Oregon City with a strong Craftsman-style influence, and it also has a unique chimney. It has some significance for its association with the Telford family.
