According to notes on the back this is the original Coe house, built by Nathaniel and Mary Coe in 1854 or 1855. The house was replaced with another by 1903, but Coe Spring is still around. The current address is 1022 State Street, though the Coe's original donation land claim included most of downtown Hood River.

Any idea of the date for this photo?
One of your first HHR photos was this one of the Coe House and strawberry fields.
Do you think old house was torn down and the new one built in the same spot?
I grumble about packing my groceries in from the car to the house. The Coe family had quite a walk to and from the river, on top of the boat travel to the grocery store.

Ooops. Forgot the link for the earlier HHR Coe house, which says was built in 1875
Maybe they were separate homes? One was Henry's and this one was his parents?

This was Nathaniel and Mary Coe's house. Henry Coe was their son. His home was built a little to the south a few years later.

Is that a vine to the right of the door that appears to be climbing up into the tree? House doesn't look like much by later standards, but quite a large house if compared to the many other homes we have seen from that era. With two chimneys for opposite ends of the house. With milled and painted exterior.
