Regarding Chandler House. The Chandler House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. There is an interesting excerpt from the NRHP Nomination Form that highlight's Cornelia Barnard Knox and it reads: In December, 1904, Mrs. Knox married John Watson. Cornelia Watson was a well-known and respected photographer in Lakeview, where she maintained a studio. When the town of Lakeview burned in 1900, she took in the homeless and fed them. She took pictures of the smoking ruins for The Portland Oregonian, before the business center was rebuilt. She served on the local School Board of Examiners. During an outbreak of typhoid fever, she nursed the sick. Much of her time was divided between her studio and helping others.
