Abstract
  • This thesis will explore the architectural material culture excavated at the Robert Newell Homestead (35MA41), currently located in Champoeg, Oregon. Specifically, the research focuses on the vernacular architecture or the features and construction methods used that both reflect the environment and the cultural traditions of the dwellings occupants. The Robert Newell homestead is a well preserved site that reflects the (1830s - 1860s) unique settlement history of Champoeg, Oregon, first settled by French Canadian fur trappers and slowly overcome by American homesteaders. As excavations took place at the site, it became clear that several periods of construction had occurred at the Robert Newell homestead reflecting both French Canadian and American cultural building traditions. These periods of construction are explored through a close examination of nails, bricks, window glass, and their frequency throughout the site as well as several well preserved architectural features. Many documents exploring cultural styles of construction, the history of the area and its growth, as well as the history of the homesteads occupants are also explored.
