State Parks Dedicate Restored Jackson House

By Jake Morgan, staff writer

     Washington State Parks officials, area dignitaries and history buffs gathered at the Jackson House State Park Heritage Site north of Toledo on October 6 to celebrate the successful restoration of the historic log cabin, first built in 1850 by John R. Jackson and his wife Matilda.

     The Jackson House was one of the first structures constructed in the Washington Territory and served at times as a post office, tavern and a U.S. District Court. Jackson served as sheriff, assessor, tax collector, territorial representative and justice of the peace, as well as on the Cowlitz and Monticello conventions.

     After Jackson’s death the historic structure fell into disrepair but was restored in 1915 in the image of the 1850 cabin. The Jackson House was one of the first two properties accepted as a state park in 1915. Restoration was performed again in 1934 and the Jackson House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

     This past summer, the Washington State Parks restored the cabin again and added interpretive panels, a re-graded parking lot, asphalt path to the fence line and an ADA-accessible paver path to the cabin porch.
