Home is where the history is at the Prairie House Inn!

This lovely home was built in 1900 and is now known as the Prairie House Inn Bed and Breakfast, lovingly restored to its original glorious detail, and includes all the necessary modern facilities and features to accommodate guests in comfort and style. Local records indicate that this was the first home in Molalla to have water and electricity installed. Historical paint colors were used to complement the design, as well as the furnishings, art and decor to reflect the era.

Prairie House Inn is named for the "prairie house" design developed by a creative group of architects in Chicago (around 1893), known as the Prairie School. The home-style design plans could be found in the Sears and Roebuck catalogue. The Prairie House style is one of the few original American styles lasting over two decades. Prairie House Inn still proudly displays its original old-growth Douglas fir siding, flooring and millwork now refinished to it's original luster.

The historical name for the home was Moody-Eckerd House as Ira and Dora Moody are thought to be the original owners/builders. William T. Eckerd acquired the property in 1906, and from this house, William, along with his son, Rolla, delivered mail for what was called the "Free Daily Routes 2 and 3". The mail delivery horses were stabled in a barn once located behind the house. The Eckerd family remained in the home until the mid 1950's with only two other owners living in the home before it was acquired in 2004 by Tootie and Nate Smith who converted it into the Prairie House Inn, Bed and Breakfast in beautiful Molalla, Oregon!

1900 Area Historical Note

The first automobile manufactured in Oregon was assembled at Frank Zollinger's garage shop in nearby Canby. Completed on the 4th of July, the car's engine was modified from a gasoline-powered wood-saw.

Molalla, Oregon (named for the Molalla Indians) is not far from Portland, Oregon, among the fields of the Willamette Valley. The Prairie House Inn Bed and Breakfast is like a portal to the past, so come join us at this elegant, cozy bed and breakfast, to experience a gentler time and slower pace.
