“A reminder of Dr. McLoughlin's contributions”
The McLoughlin House stands today as a reminder of the great contribution Dr. John McLoughlin made to the settlement of the Oregon Country. In 1909, it was threatened with demolition, but a group of concerned local citizens formed the McLoughlin Memorial Association to preserve and protect the house and the legacy of Dr. McLoughlin. They moved the house from its original location by the river up to its present location atop the bluff, restored it, and turned the house into a museum. The McLoughlin Memorial Association continues to actively support the McLoughlin House, in partnership with the National Park Service.
It's only open Friday's and Saturday's for viewing, as are most other historical homes in the area. Double check the hours before you go!
I live near here, so I have been here numerous times. It's a neat place to go for sightseeing and seeing the house Dr. John McLoughlin lived in. However, everytime I go here, I feel like someone is watching me. It has a very eerie feel to the place. Now, I wouldn't say its "haunted" I would say there are spirits here, watching over the place.
