Pollard Donation Farmhouse, 3562 Swegle Road NE, (D)

This property was near the northwest corner of the Zachariah Pollard Donation Land Claim. The house may have been built as early as 1904, certainly by 1917. The original owners are not yet known. The resident with the longest known tenancy was Kenneth Hinkle of the Salem Upholstery Company. He moved to this county residence in 1948 from his former home on 17th Street, Salem. His name continues to appear at this address in the City Register until 1980. Due to a change in the street and new developments around the property, this residence is hardly visible and the trees gone.
