While tall ships yet plied the Columbia River and salmon runs were plentiful, Eben Tallant and his brother, Nathan Tallant, came to Astoria to build a salmon packing cannery, much larger than the cannery in Eagle Cliff, Washington had been, before it burned down in a horrible fire.
Andrew Ferguson designed the Eben Tallant family residence at 682 Arch street in the Richardson Shingle style. Features of the house are: a bullet turret, inset balconies, open staircase, and beautiful bay windows.
Our Northwest tower, now capped with an open balcony, gives one the feeling of being Captain at the prow of a ship, as the house steers toward the Columbia River Bar. Perhaps this feeling is not accidental. Eben Tallant was, in fact, the first officer on the Clipper, "Golden State", and held the same position on the passenger ship, "John Bright" plying the China Sea, between Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Divided into eight apartments for over forty years, the Tallant home is now owned by the Maxwells and is known as Grandview Bed & Breakfast, 1574 Grand Avenue, Astoria, Oregon 97103, Phone (503) 325-0000 or 325-5555 for local area calls or 1-800-488-3250.
