The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Oregon sponsored the Georgian dining room in the Dr. John McLoughlin House.
McLoughlin was the famed Chief Factor of the Hudson Bay Company in the northwest district from 1829-1846. His generositiy 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. The house is owned and operated by the National Park Service. The McLoughlin Memorial Association (MMA) that operated the house-museum since 1909, is now the National Park Service partner at the site. In addition to restoring and furnishing the dining room, the Oregon Society provides docents.
