Snapp House preserves local medical history
By Cindy Weeldreyer
For The Sentinel
The familiar Queen Ann Vic-
torian house at the confl uence of
Silk Creek and the Coast Fork
of the Willamette River is a mu-
seum maintained by the Pros-
pectors and Gold Diggers Club
to showcase early medical prac-
tices. It is Cottage Grove’s only
Victorian-era house open to the
public and next week it will be
decorated in its holiday fi nery
for the annual Dr. Snapp’s Holi-
day Bazaar, Dec. 1-3.
Built in 1886, by one of the
town’s early doctors for his
wife, it was originally located
near the corner of South River
Road and Main Street. In 1966,
the Lane County Housing Au-
thority purchased the property
to construct Riverview Terrace,
a senior housing complex. To
make way for what was to be-
come the tallest building in
town, nicknamed the High Rise
by locals, the shabby Victorian
home was destined to become a
“burn to learn” exercise for the
fi re department.
Local historian and business
leader Ray Nelson persuaded
club members to purchase the
house from Lane County for $1
and then raised the funds to re-
locate it to a nearby city-owned
property. Nelson’s original vi-

sion was to create a replica of
the “village era” of Cottage
Grove on that property to attract
freeway travelers to stop and
visit. The Dr. Snapp House was
the fi rst and only phase of that
effort and sits today on the north
end of Prospector Park near the
Swinging Bridge that connects
Slabtown to Lemati.
The booster club traces its
origin to Oregon’s Centenni-
al Celebration in 1959; when
Grovers organized an elaborate
observance of the town’s early
history. Everyone had such a
grand time a decision was made
to create a community organi-
zation devoted to preserving
local history. This resulted in
the establishment of the annual
Bohemia Mining Days festival
in mid-July. In 1964, the club
began BMD’s legendary Min-
ers’ Breakfast on The Moun-
tain. The popular event attracts
nearly 1,000 diners to Bohemia

In August, Cottage Grove
High School Principal Mike In-
gman started conversations with
the Woodard Foundation about
the Career Technical Education
(CTE) Program. Last week,
the school received a check for
“It was a dream more than
anything else,” Ingman said of
the award which came in the
form of a top-off grant from the
The school’s CTE instruc-
tors came up with a wish list
of things to stock the culinary,
technology, drafting and woods
programs that totaled $45,548.
The hope was that some of the
list would be funded.
“The foundation came back
and funded the whole kit and
caboodle,” Ingman said.
The CTE program is funded
in part by Measure 98 and al-
lows students the opportunity to
learn outside of the classroom
and earn hands-on experienc-
es in technical fi elds through
community partnerships and
instruction. Earlier this year,
there was uncertainty surround-
ing funding sources after the
state legislature bypassed bud-
get deadlines in construction an
education budget for the state.
The package that passed was
touted as the highest in recent
history at $8.2 billion including
Measure 98 funds for the South
Lane School District.
“We’re just really honored
that the foundation sees the val-
ue in our CTE departments and
they’d be willing to fund that,”
Ingman said. “We’ll be buying
equipment that, there’s no other
way we’d be able to.”
On the list? A new motor for
the jet milling machine for the
drafting classes as well as a la-
ser engraver and new electrical
outlet installations. A new front
load washer and dryer for the
culinary classes as well as a
microwave and pots and pans.
The woods department will be
welcoming two saw stops at an
estimated value of $3,899 each
and a 10” sliding miter saw. The
school received a grant from an
insurance company last year
to pay for half the cost of the
saw stop after it was noted the
equipment potentially saved a
student’s fi nger.
Ingman expects purchases to
begin around December 1.
