AboutThe house was built in 1881 by Jesse Edwards, the Quaker founder of Newberg, and is the oldest standing home in the original township. In 1885, Dr. Henry John Minthorn, uncle and foster-father of Herbert Hoover who would later become the 31st President of the United States, and his family moved into the house. The furniture in President Hoover's bedroom is the actual set he used as a boy, and many of the furnishings throughout the house belonged to the Minthorn family when they lived in Newberg.
