An aimless bike ride through old Albany took me past the corner of Montgomery and Fourth, where the historic Goltra House attracted my attention because it has been beautifully restored.
I had written about it back in October 2019, when contractor Joel Dahl and his crew were hard at work turning the former Oxford House group home into a fully renovated family house.
You can read that old story here.
The following month, Dahl went before the Albany Landmarks Commission and won approval of his plans for the exterior of the house, which dates from 1892 and is named for the prominent Linn County farm family for which it was built.
Now the project evidently is done. A new decorative fence lines the corner property, and a tree has been planted on the corner itself.
The whole thing makes for an impressive enhancement of the Hackleman Historic District. (hh)
