Charles and Martha Brown House, Santiam Heritage Foundation

Santiam Heritage Foundation in conjunction with Salem for All Presents:

Santiam Heritage Foundation is a non-profit group working on restoring the Charles and Martha Brown House, a historic 1903 Victorian home in Stayton.  Salem For All works to provide free or low-cost tickets for concerts and events to persons who may otherwise not be able to attend such opportunities.

Charles Brown designed and built a grand Queen Anne house for his family in 1903. The house was one of the first in Stayton to have indoor plumbing and electrical wiring designed and built into the structure. Mr. Brown also built in a radiant heating system with hot water pipes on both floors. Fine woodwork still adorns most of the rooms; the living room and parlor show exceptional craftsmanship in ornate moldings and architectural detail. The house was purchased by the Santiam Heritage Foundation in 2000 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in September 2002.
