Inscription.  The Goodwillie-Allen-Rademacher House, built in 1904, is one of the oldest Craftsman Bungalow style homes in Oregon, and is the last remaining house from that era on the east side of Mirror Pond. This house was officially listed in the National Register of Historic Places on May 23, 2007 (NRIS # 07000493).
Aurthur Lawson Goodwillie relocated to Bend in 1904. He was the Secretary of A.M. Drake's Pilot Butte Development Company and a partner. Goodwill was named chief petitioner for the incorporation of the City of Bend in the late fall of 1904. At age 27, he was named Bend's first mayor.
Herbert Engle Allen was Assistant General Manager of Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Company and was also associated with a handful of firms that spurred the area's growth and development. Allen was an active member of the community serving city government and school district.
Dr. Clyde Rademacher, M.D., a Minnesota physician, relocated his practice to Bend in 1933. He lived in the house until the 1980's. Rademacher and several other community doctors established the Bend Memorial Clinic.
