The Van Eaton home has experienced some transformations. Built originally in 1898 by T.C. Van Eaton, it was looking a bit worn down here in 1960s.
Justin Van Eaton says, “My Grandmother Elsie Van Eaton used to have a wonderful Garden there. I remember playing among the Sunflowers and Oregon Giant Green Beans.”
Later on, T.C.’s grandson Dr. Tom Van Eaton, would transform the home, adding on and making it his own without changing what original made it unique.
