National Register of Historic Places in Coos County
This remarkably well-preserved woodframe residence was built for affluent lumberman John E. Paulson.
Although the Sherwood House is based on specifications provided by plan-book author George F. Barber of Knoxville, Tennessee, the Paulson House has not been linked directly to the ubiquitous Barber designs. The Paulson House does, however, resemble an anonymous design for a residence at Bridgeport, Connecticut, published in a supplement to the Scientific American architects and builders edition of May, 1891.
