Property History
• Architect: Richard Sundeleaf.
• The home was designed so that if you stand in the middle of the driveway circle and as you looked through the living room windows you could see Mary’s Peak (there are too many trees now).
• The home was originally built for James H. Batcheller who was a professor in the School of Mines at Oregon Agricultural College (now Oregon State University).
• The living room ceiling and beams, and other wood in the house are from the first Corvallis school, as is the flag stone at entry.
• The home was owned by Dr. Lewis and Carol and Krakauer and was the childhood home of Jon Krakauer (reference-stained glass piece in office made by Carol Krakauer as were other pieces in the home).
• It is not known how Lincoln Highway marker came to be placed in the yard.
