It was 1910 when Maud Hays, at the age of 18, was married in her childhood house. She wed Wallace Truax. It must have been a wonderful day. Wallace and Maud were very successful on their own little farm. Wallace was paid $6 for his lambs and over $40 for seed clover. Their name went on to become a Geographic Place Name: Truax Island located northeast of Corvallis, Oregon.
But what of the L shaped house? The house, built around 1860, does not have much documented history. It has two interior brick chimneys and a west wing. Many windows have no glass, front door is off its hinges, but it appears to still have all of its original materials- as though no one lived there after the original owner, Z.G. Hays, left.
and I am left with so many questions
