Note
The Heimuller Farmstead was nominated to the National Register as a largely intact collection of residential and farm buildings constructed by John and Carolena Heimuller during the early twentieth century. The farmstead is an excellent example of subsistence farming around the Scappoose area and Columbia County during the early twentieth century and consists of several buildings, including a cross-gable farmhouse, barn, and windmill. After arriving in Oregon in 1898, the Heimullers settled on approximately 40 acres west of Scappoose and developed a subsistence farm and, later, raised other crops, such as apples, cherries, potatoes, walnuts, and filberts, for commercial purposes. The Heimuller’s apple orchard and Burbank potatoes were especially well-known in the area. The Heimullers lived and operated the farm from 1910 until 1959.
