About the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum

Welcome to the boyhood home of President Herbert Hoover, located in the heart of wine country in Newberg, Oregon. At the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum, we illustrate Hoover’s Quaker childhood with his Aunt and Uncle Minthorn in Newberg. The museum is dedicated to telling the story of this family in an early small town in Oregon and its influence on a boy who would become President. This collection boasts original artifacts owned by the Hoover-Minthorn family as well as other 1880s items that represent Newberg at the end of the nineteenth century.

The Hoover-Minthorn House Museum strives to educate the public about Hoover’s boyhood years in Newberg, and the Quaker values that influenced his worldwide humanitarian efforts.
