In 1880 when Portland shoe merchant Morris Marks and his wife Annie built a new home at 1134 S.W. 12th Avenue, he probably didn’t imagine the house would ever move. The home was designed by Portland architect Warren Heywood Williams in an Italianate style, of which there are few remaining examples in Portland. Williams would eventually design another larger Italianate-style home for Marks, which now sits at 1501 S.W. Harrison Street and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
