National Register of Historic Places in Klamath County
The Benson House, built about 1892, is the only example of vernacular Octagonal domestic architecture in Klamath Falls and one of fewer than half a dozen such examples in the state. The house not only embodies the distinctive characteristics of the Octagonal mode, it possesses integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, and feeling.
Its most noteworthy occupant was prominent jurist, Speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives and State Supreme Court Justice Henry Lamdin Benson who made it his home for twenty-three years.
