525 Fifth Street
" Taylor Dement House "

This home was built in 1910 for W. Taylor & Nellie F. Dement. W. Taylor was one of Myrtle Point's early mayors and a cattle breeder. Wallace B. Dement, who also lived in the home, was known to be a lawyer who worked in the Security Bank Building in 1940.

The California bungalow style home reportedly was built on the same plans as the Laird house at the corner of Maryland and Highway 42.
