This morning in Vancouver at the Charles Brown House we were thrilled to have a few of Charles Brown’s descendants visit us and share old stories and photographs.

Charles Wilson (94) who lives in Corvallis is Charles Brown’s last surviving grandchild and grew up right here in the house from ages 8-21. His mother was Charles’ daughter, Frances. He hadn’t been back to the house since 1935! The highlight was Charles “Chuck” seeing his old bedroom again for the first time in 72 years.

Chuck was joined by his cousin Anne and her son Rick, who are Brown descendants as well. It was a great time.
