HARLEY AND DRAGA SWIFT RESIDENCE c. 1944 -- Statement of Significance: Harley Swift was a self-employed log hauler. This house, built toward the end of World War II, has no special significance to Canemah. The house that originally sat on the site belonged to Adam Strange, who has the dubious distinction of being the only man to fall off the boardwalk from Canemah to the mills on the east side of the river and kill himself by drowning in the Willamette River.
