A saved history: Oregon's oldest house owned by black pioneers makes the National Register of Historic Places

Historic home built by Hannah and Eliza Gorman, mother and daughter, who had crossed the Great Plains to Oregon via the Oregon Trail as slaves of Fielden and Eizabeth Bounds Thorp. Their home survived and was purchased in 2004 by Patricia Benner and her husband Tony Howell. They had the home registered with the National Register of Historic Places. Many many thanks to Patricia Benner for sharing this beautiful story with me to add to the website as part of our family history.
(note: Elizabeth Bounds was the niece of this site's owner's gg-grandfather James Lovelady
