A. V. Peters House

The A. V. Peters House aka the Peters-Liston-Wintermeier House, located in Eugene, Oregon, United States, is a house listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1] The house was built circa 1870 for merchant Andrew Vincent Peters and his wife Mary Elizabeth "Lizzy" (Shaw) Peters on the southeast corner of 10th and Pearl streets (661 Pearl Street was the original address), and moved to its current location[2][3] in 1912. A 1+12-story 1890s carriage house was also moved onto the property at about the same time. Considered one of Oregon's finest examples of the Rural Gothic Style, the house was built using a design from a pattern book by Henry W. Cleaveland[2] published in 1856. Another pattern book, Woodward's National Architect, published in 1869, was also used as a reference for some of the decorative elements of the house.[citation needed] The house features board and batten siding, scrollwork balcony detailing, and bracketed eaves supporting the steeply pitched roof.[2]
