Description
National Register of Historic Places (Listed, 2015) The 1854 Masters House is located east of Hillsboro and west of the community of Aloha. The house is as an excellent example of a Classical Revival dwelling constructed during Oregon’s settlement period by overland emigrants. The timber frame house illustrates common earlier building construction techniques, with hewn structural members, rough sawn utility lumber, and planed finish materials. The house is also notable as the long-time residence of Sarah Jane Masters, who settled there with her first husband on their 638-acre land claim. Sarah’s husband died as the result of an altercation with neighbor James McMillen only two years after completion of the house. Mary Jane was to marry again twice, bear eight children, and live in the house until her death in 1896. Source: Oregon State Historic Preservation Office.
