John Tigard House

In 1852 Wilson McClendon Tigard, his wife Mary Ann and their young son, John, traveled across the plains from Arkansas on the Oregon Trail. They settled on a Donation Land Claim of 320 acres. The area in which they settled was called East Butte, then later Tigardville. When the name Tigardville became confused with the name Wilsonville, it was shortened to Tigard. Wilson Tigard had the Queen Anne Carpenter Gothic home built for his son, John, in 1880. The house remained in the family until 1946 when it was sold. In 1979 the house was in danger of being demolished for new retail construction on Pacific Highway, where it was located. Concerned local citizens formed a group and raised the funds to move the home to its present location.
