The Mincemoyer property located on the corner of NW 231st Avenue and Baseline Road was originally 12 Acres. RA Mincemoyer bought the property in 1909 from the Oregon Nursery Company and proceeded to build a beautiful home and Barn as well as a carriage home and a couple of cottages and other buildings. Along the banks of Rock Creek he and his family lived for many years before selling the property to Colonel Ring who resided there as well. The Property is widely known as “Ring’s Hill”. In 2014 it came to my attention that the buildings were all being torn out for 12 new homes to go in. Being the end of an era I approached Riverside Homes who owns the land and asked for their permission to get to the barn and try and save as much material as we possibly can. The wood in this barn is anywhere from rotted to nice. So it is that we are starting to take the wood out of the building and boy is it a challenge but worth it! We plan to reuse as much of this wood as we can in the Orenco Community.
THANK YOU TO RIVERSIDE HOMES FOR SETTING AMAZING EXAMPLE OF WHAT DEVELOPERS AND BUILDERS CAN AND SHOULD DO- THIS FOR ME WAS A FIRST AND Riverside Home Management NIKI MUNSON AND CRAIG SCHUCK are to be commended for their efforts donating the wood. There is no other way this could happen as the labor is just way too intensive and this is dangerous work too!
If you have an interest in purchasing the wood at a very reasonable cost and have a use for it to use it in the we can consider that. Email Dirk at firstname.lastname@example.org for a call back and please explain your intended use. Thank you!
One of the best things I have ever done and this is a Win for all involved. Glad we were able to make it all happen –
