Baker City Historic District

—Established 1874 —

Haskell was one of Baker City's leading real estate developers of the late 1800s and early 1900s. He also engaged in many other pursuits.
He was born in 1850 in Ohio. At age 18, he went to Montana to become a miner. He later mined in Nevada, then relocated to California, where he had a printing business and edited a newspaper. He arrived in Baker County at age 24, soon became a mining company manager, then started his own mining company.
He was elected to the state legislature in 1889, and served as a school district director.
He had this building constructed in 1897. In the early years, the second floor housed the Elks Hall.
