Fodor's Review

In 1885 Dr. Henry Minthorn invited his orphan nephew Herbert "Bertie" Hoover to come west and join the Minthorn family in Newberg. Built in 1881, the restored frame house, the oldest and most significant of Newberg's original structures, still has many of its original furnishings, including the President's boyhood bed and dresser. Hoover maintained his connection to Newberg, and visited several times after his presidency.
