National Register of Historic Places in Jackson County
The fashionable southern Oregon country estate of industrialist Edward Raymond Driver was designed by Frank C. Clark, the leading architect in the Rogue River Valley for many years. The house is representative of the Cape Cold Colonial mode.
The Colonial Revival style and modern Colonial style were particularly popular with Clark's clients, many of whom had come from the East to build the Rogue Valley's pear industry at the opening of the 20th century. Driver was among the newcomers who selected developed orchard properties as scenic settings for their new, architect-designed residences.
