Bybee-Howell House

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday, my mom has suggested making a run out to Sauvie Island, and go to one of the farms to see if they had Strawberries yet. Turns out that it is still a little early for strawberries, especially to get flats of them to make jam. They had some from their first picking so we got a couple of pints. 

We had driven past this old farm house, which I had seen before, but kind of took notice of yesterday. The site has been turned into a territorial park. The house itself was built back in 1856, before Oregon was even a state. It’s original owner was one of the first commissioners of Multnomah County. 

I love old farm houses, especially in this part of the country. The Bybee – Howell house has an orchard out back, and it was so pretty.
