Some examples are: a paper mosaic design paired with an old art history that I studied in 9th grade; current glass crosses that were created during the study of Gothic architecture in 10th grade; hand-printed graphics combined with bookbinding for an 11th grade history class that covered the Northern Renaissance; and an example of what can be achieved with a few hours of hands - through experience in the art and crafts department of a high school.
The large and handsome Liriodendron tulip tree was sent to the museum in 1986 as a seedling from Mount Vernon. The fir and cedar was erected as part of the Oregon Trail Crossing by Horace and Julia Ann Sturges Dibble. Before he was transferred to Molalla to save it from demolition, this was Herbert Hoover's home, where the post office served as his first home in Oregon, and the yard he remembered well from his childhood characters.
Today, McLoughlin House commemorates the great contributions Dr. John McLouglin made to Oregon's history. The family lived there until 1959, when the house and land were turned into a museum by the OSSDAR and the family returned it to its original owners in 1990.
The Hoover Minthorn House Museum was built in 1881 by Jesse Edwards, a Quaker founder of Newberg. In 1947, a group of Hoover friends, led by William Pittocks and his wife Mary, were interested in buying and restoring the house. To stay true to their homeland, the Pittocks hired artisans and craftsmen from Oregon and used materials from the Northwest to build them. In the basement of the house a small foundation was built with a small stone fireplace and a large fireplace on the second floor.
