John McLoughlin was the famed Chief Factor of the Hudson Bay Company in the northwest district from 1829-1846. He crossed the Rockies in 1824 and established Ft. Vancouver in 1825. His generosity to destitute American pioneers caused his dismissal from the company. He retired to Oregon City and built this fine Colonial house where he lived with his wife, Marguerita, until his death in 1857. In addition to restoring and furnishing the dining room, the Oregon Society provides docents.
