The Hoover-Minthorn House in Newberg, Oregon, was home to Herbert Hoover, 31st President of the United States, from 1885-1889. It is now preserved as a memorial to him and to the lifestyle of the Quaker community which shaped his boyhood experience. It has been fully restored to its original condition c. 1881, and contains many of its original furnishings, as well as memorabilia of the period and items belonging to President Hoover.
