A mile East of Florence, Oregon, on the South bank of the Siuslaw River, stands this solitary abandoned white frame house. The house has been vacant for more than 45 years. This painting of the house, done in 1972, shows the house before the seasonal floods, tides and weather took its toll. Today it is partially hidden by fir trees and blackberry bushes and is slowly sinking into the bank of the Siuslaw. Access to the house is by boat only. Author Ken Kesey based his novel Sometimes A Great Notion,
the story of a rebellious Oregon logging family, upon inspirations the house gave him.
