Monmouth, Oregon was settled by a group of immigrants from Monmouth, Illinois. Unfortunately, no structures from those early days remain.
The oldest private structure still existing in Monmouth today, is the Craven House, located on east Main Street. The Western Oregon University campus is where you can find the second oldest existing structure, known as Campbell Hall, dating back to 1871.
