2017-2018 Capital Campaign
We are in the process of raising funds through our Capital Campaign to complete the Second Floor Rehabilitation. This will open more space for public viewing and use, and will be used for offices for business or non-profits. We will install a handicap access ramp. Next, we will continue work of our outbuilding “The Laundry” which will hold a display about our hospital years, event space, handicap restrooms, and an office for our foundation.
-Re-plastering walls and ceilings
-Stripping and staining wood trims
-Rehabilitation of Water Closet and Hall Sink
-Replacement of light fixtures
-Re-wiring and installation of wall heaters

We are not a museum.
We are a historical and architectural landmark.
Brown House serves Stayton and the surrounding communities as a nationally significant site for social and cultural events:
– Receptions and meetings
– Exhibits and presentations
– Concerts and reunions
– Weddings and recitals
– Educational and cultural uses
“We wish to gratefully acknowledge the many Volunteers who have given of their time and vision to significantly advance the rescue and rehabilitation of The Charles and Martha Brown House”. We hope to continue their stewardship and make this gem a resource for the community for another hundred years.
Please join us in supporting the work to complete our vision. Many have come before. It will take many to bring us to completion.
