History of The Brooks Street House
The Brooks Street House was originally built in the late 1800s, where one young McMinnville couple, a Mr. and Mrs. Lowban, decided to settle down. They soon gave birth to two boys, one of whom would grow up to become the postmaster of McMinnville while living in the very same home he grew up in. Rooted in the history of one of Oregon’s first towns, this home has been witness to two generations of families and many decades worth of changes in Yamhill County life.
Though most of the home was entirely remodeled in 2013, the Brooks Street House remains one of McMinnville’s most historic pieces of real estate, and maintains its original, rustic farmhouse charm. One of the oldest pieces in the home is the vintage claw foot bathtub, which is perfectly suited for a relaxing soak that just might bring about memories of a time much quieter and simpler in our beautiful town of McMinnville.
