Victorian Christmas
Dreaming of a White Christmas?  There probably won't be snow, but Santa will be flying down from the North Pole to visit with the children at the John Tigard House on Saturday, December 1st from 1 to 4 pm!  He'll be chatting with the little ones and listening to their wishes for holiday gifts. Free photos will be taken with Santa!

In addition, there will be Christmas cookies to decorate and hot spiced cider will be served.  The 1880 Tigard House will be decorated for the holidays with Christmas trees in the kitchen and the parlor as well as twinkling lights on its Carpenter Gothic exterior.

The Passing of Curtis Tigard

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Mr. Curtis Tigard on the morning of July 25, 2018. 
 He was the son of Charles F. Tigard and the grandson of Wilson Tigard and the last member of the Tigard family to reside in our fair city.  

Curtis was 109 years old and leaves behind family and countless friends, because when Curtis met someone, they instantly became a friend.  He was “Tigard” at its best and a true gentleman.  

A biography available here.  Rest in Peace, Curtis Tigard (1909-2018)
