National Register of Historic Places in Jackson County
The Chappell-Swedenburg House was built as a residence for stockbroker Charles Chappell and his family. It was designed by architect Frank Chamberlain Clark shortly after his arrival in the Rogue River Valley in 1902.
The Colonial Revival residence was placed in a prominent location along Siskiyou Boulevard, Ashland's important new thoroughfare. The foremost formal residence in Ashland at the time of its construction, the house retains its historic exterior architectural integrity and interior detail.
The Chappell-Swedenburg House is located on the campus of Southern Oregon University and is open to the public for special events.
