Lewis Anderson, Swedish immigrant, built this house in 1895 on Pleasant Ridge, 25 miles southwest of Dalles. Its hand-hewn logs were carven from tamarack and pine. House was the social center of Pleasant Ridge in the late 1800s. There are three buildings that make up Anderson Homestead; log house, granary, and barn. Granary was originally home before it was used for storing grain. The barn was the largest and most important building on the Homestead. Construction, with its careful fittings and use of wood pegs in corners and at other intervals, reflects high order of craftsmanship. Buildings were moved to Dalles in 1971, and restored to their original condition, largely through community volunteer efforts. Today, Anderson Homestead is located just across the Street from Fort Dalles Museum Surgeons Quarters and gives visitors a peek into what pioneer life was during the 1800s.
