The Tigard Historical Association
 
The Tigard Historical Association was established in 1978 to move and restore the 1880 John Tigard House and to preserve the cultural and historical  legacy of the Tigard, Oregon area.   Its members have conserved the John Tigard House; built an ever-expanding collection of memorabilia, artifacts and furniture décor; conducted on-going research into the history of the area and its citizens; and held many seasonal events.
 
THA Believes
  • The preservation of the John Tigard House and its unique collection are an expression of community pride.
  • We owe it to the community, the next generation and to the cultural resources themselves to be good conservators.

Ice Cream Social - July 13, 2015 1 - 4 pm

Ice Cream Social - July 11, 2015

We all scream for Ice Cream.  Especially in the good ole' summer time.  Come out to the John Tigard House on Saturday, July 11, from 1 to 4 pm for an old fashioned Ice Cream Social.

Make your own sundae with ice cream and all the toppings for the good ole price of 50 cents each.  Tour the historic 1880 Carpenter Gothic home which belonged to one of Tigard's earliest residents.  Relax in the shade of the apple trees; browse the flower and veggie gardens.  

Crafts and activities for the children include dress up costumes.  Bring your camera for a photo of your "pioneer" children.  Watch the Tigard Quilters work their newest project, a patriotic quilt well suited for the month our country celebrates its independence.
