The home at 306 3rd Ave was constructed around 1900. It was originally a one story dwelling. The second story was added in the 1930s. The original wraparound porch was redesigned and replaced along with a number of other significant changes.
This building is important to the history of Myrtle Creek because it was the home of Guy R. Bates, who was the manager of Citizens State Bank from the late 1920s until his death in the early 1940s. It was “Banker” Bates that remodeled the house in the 1930s. He came to Myrtle Creek from the mid-west.
