Built circa 1843, the Francis Ermatinger House is both an early and unusual house for Oregon. This Greek or Classical Revival style of architecture would have been uncommon in the territory of Oregon during this time period.
Come tour the museum to learn about the Ermatinger family, the Hudson's Bay Company and what life was like during Oregon City's early history.
