Robert Vinton Beall House
1253 Beall Lane
Central Point
Built 1863-1864

Robert Vinton Beall was a Maryland native and an Oregon Trail pioneer. He took up a claim at Central Point in 1854 and operated pack trains between Jacksonville and Crescent City before eventually concentrating on ranching.

The Beall House is an excellent example of the modest rural Gothic Revival residences built in western Oregon during the 1860s. It is the only known surviving house of this style existent in southwestern Oregon.

The Beall House retains its original design as well as most of the original materials. Very little modification of the exterior has occurred. The kitchen wing, which collapsed around 1950, was restored with materials which are virtually identical in appearance to those used on the rest of the structure's exterior.

Adapted from the NRHP nomination submitted in 1979.
