House of the founding pioneer whom this city was named after, John Tigard. His parents, Wilson McClendon Tigard ad wife Mary Ann came out on the Oregon Trail from Arkansas to settle on a Donation Land Claim of 320 acres. The town was initially called East Butte and later to Tigardville. To avoid confusion with Wilsonville they eventually shortened the name to Tigard. The home contains four rooms besides the entryway, a parlor, one bedroom, a kitchen and pantry. The John Tigard children slept in the attic. Today the home has been restored to its former glory while the parlor is furnished as it might have been when the Tigards lived here.
