Note
The Watson-Price farm is located at 23380 Hoskins Road, Philomath Oregon in the Kings Valley section of Benton County. The house was built in 1852 in the Greek Revival style. It is the only remaining home built in the valley by William Pitman and is a fine example of his skill as both a designer and builder. The property has been continuously used as a farm since it was first developed. Other contributing structures on the property include a large side opening barn constructed in 1848 and seven additional outbuildings built within the period of significance.
