Gentle House

Event Center

Historic Gentle House has been in use, by the public and Western, as an event center since 1983. The Gentle Family loved to entertain; their house was donated to the WOU Foundation by Catharine Gentle after she passed away so that it could continue to be a link between the community and university.

Sitting next to Gentle Acres, Century Farm, and surrounding Gentle House, the gardens are home to century old plants as well as trees that predate the house itself.

Upkeep of the gardens is made possible by Polk County Master Gardeners and Friends of Gentle House Volunteers.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
