A House With a History

After a fifteen month restoration project, the original Howard house, located at 288 SW 2nd Ave. in Ontario, Oregon, has recently become the home of Second & Vine Bistro.

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.

Testimonials

What a wonderful addition to Ontario! We were given a tour of the house and its history. The authenticity in every feature makes this place that much more memorable. The owner was friendly, knowledgeable and informative in a very down to earth manner; which for someone who is not a wine connoisseur and at a wine establishment made this experience relaxing and enjoyable! The patio was beautiful, the service was amazing and the staff attentive. Highly recommend to everyone!

Suzi and Terry have done a beautiful job of renovating one of Ontario's most darling homes into this fun wine and appetizer bar! From the stamped concrete, wine barrel bar (with gold leaf) 🙂 to the faucet and hydraulics in the bathroom. Fun addition to "our town." We happened to hit on sushi night....what a hit it was. I believe we had every appetizer on the menu and enjoyed each one. The whole environment is hospitality plus!!! Thank you all so much!

Stopped by for a nice afternoon break in the beautiful courtyard. I had a glass of wine and my husband tried one of the Pendleton Beers.

We ordered the Apple Chorizo special and the crostini with pineapple jalapeño jam and cream cheese. Absolutely delicious. Thanks for giving Ontario a nice new business.
