Location: Dutch Canyon, Scappoose, Columbia, Oregon, United States
This is a space for photos and other details of the Lange family and related homestead properties in Scappoose Oregon. There were 3 iterations of the home and property of Gustave Lange and family located in the 'bottoms' of Dutch Canyon. The clapboard sided homes are the ones there. Gustave bought this property from the Van Cleaves. Later on, one of Gustaves beautiful daughters would grow up to marry a Van Cleave son. Eventually Fred, Gustaves oldest son, took over that property. Fred still has descendents in Scappoose. Also at a later date, Gustave would buy another property, located on Rabinsky Rd, about 5 miles further up the canyon, also located on a creek and including 40 acres of mostly mountainous terrain and about a 4 acre flat area. Otto Lange, Gustaves youngest son, would take over that upper property and 4 generations of Gustaves descendents would be born or would spend many wonderful times there. The upper property was finally sold in November of 2019, to the dismay of the last owner, who could no longer manage alone due to age, and this profile space manager, who could not take over because its remote location made it not feasible, and who were both born and lived there. Pictures of the small home on the second property will be added soon. Many of the Scappoose Langes married into familys that lived in the canyon or the surrounding area, and I think some of those homes too, are worth showcasing on this page.
