A House With a History
Designed by architect Lawrence Brown, this home was built in 1934 for Aubrey and Hallie Howard. Both Aubrey and Hallie were employed in the apparel industry, working for Rainwater Jones at the Ontario Laundry, with Aubrey as a professional tailor and Hallie as a seamstress. Aubrey also was a tailor for Toggery Bill's/Quisenberry's until he retired.
Aubrey and Hallie also ran the Crystal Ballroom in Ontario and an outdoor dance pavilion at the Oregon Trail Park on Mortimer's Island in Weiser. The Howards lived in their house from 1934 until 1965 when Aubrey passed away. Hallie remained in the house for another two years.
