The Gallaher House built in 1914 is an historic octagon house located at 600 12th Street in Bridgeport, Washington. The house was listed on the National Register on August 1, 1975, and the listing was amended on June 27, 1995, following the house's relocation five miles from its original location.[1]

In 2006, the nearby town of Pateros, Washington paid an earnest money deposit to buy the house with the idea that it would be relocated there for use as a visitors center. The deadline for completing the deal passed without further action.[2] At a meeting on August 21, 2006, the city council of Paternos decided to abandon plans to purchase the house even though the state Department of Transportation had provided a $140,000 grant to use toward its purchase.[3][4]
