JOHN AND MARY BRADLEY HOUSE -- Statement of Significance: In 1892, John C. and Mary L. Bradley purchased this property. Mr. Bradley was born in Indiana in 1850 and crossed the plains in 1867. He was involved in local politics and served as deputy assessor, constable, sheriff, and county assessor from 1895-96. In 1920, the couple sold the property to George and Mary Hyatt, who in turn sold to Adam and Lenora Mootry in 1936. Mr. Mootry was a finisher for Crown-Willamette Paper Company. In the 1940s through the early 1960s, a related family member lived in the house. Harold Mootry was a logger and boat operator for Crown Zellerbach and his wife worked for Pub. Paper Company. They had three sons, David, Alan, and John.
