2010
In 1843, brothers Jesse, Lindsay, and Charles Applegate-accompanied by their wives and twenty-two children-led the first major wagon train from Missouri to Oregon. By the end of the decade, the restless clan had left the Willamette Valley and staked claim in Yoncalla in southern Oregon's Umpqua Valley. In 1852 Charley began construction on a large 2 story home that the family moved into in 1856. The house was unusual in that it had 2 sides, each a mirror image of the other, one side for the men and the other side for the women. There was no internal connection between the sides. The cooking was done on the women’s side and the food was then taken outside and back into Charley’s side where the family and guests dined. This arrangement proved unsatisfactory to the women and soon Charley built a large kitchen and dining room addition to the back of the house. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
