How Abby’s House got its Name

The name Abby's House was chosen in honor of Abigail Scott Duniway: she fought long and hard in Oregon and nationally for the rights of women, including the right to vote and the right to own property. Her brother, who was the editor of The Oregonian, was opposed to women’s suffrage, as was his newspaper. So, she started her own newspaper, The New Northwest. She also raised 6 children, and supported the family as a teacher and business owner, after her husband was disabled 4 years into their marriage. She lived parts of her adult life in Yamhill, Clackamas and Linn Counties.
