The Tigard Historical Association
The Tigard Historical Association was established in 1978 to move and restore the 1880 John Tigard House and to preserve the cultural and historical  legacy of the Tigard, Oregon area.   Its members have conserved the John Tigard House; built an ever-expanding collection of memorabilia, artifacts and furniture décor; conducted on-going research into the history of the area and its citizens; and held many seasonal events.
THA Believes
  • The preservation of the John Tigard House and its unique collection are an expression of community pride.
  • We owe it to the community, the next generation and to the cultural resources themselves to be good conservators.

THA Hosts Visitors From Germany 

Tigard Historical Association’s luncheon in honor of our guest from Germany, Mr. Winfried Heimann.  Mr. Heimann and his distant cousin Jean Shultz are related to the Schamoni family which built “Germania Hall” on Main Street in Tigard in 1907.  The luncheon was held at Café Allegro which is located in the former Germania Hall building.  Adolf and Mary Schamoni had a restaurant, grocery store and family living quarters in the back of the main floor.  The upper floors were used as a dance hall and hotel rooms.  Mr. Heiman shared photos and letters of the Schamoni family both in the United States and in Germany to be placed in THA’s  Archives.”
