|In the hills above Scappoose, a home for the lost souls of Portland was started in 1915 by Mother Mattie Lawrence and her husband Albert. In 1920 Albert falls dead from a sudden heart attack in downtown Portland. 1937 sees Mother Mattie get involved in a fatal car crash. Within the years of operation, the home took in over 300 injured, sick or down trodden men and women. Pisgah Home Colony put these men to work building, logging or farming around the main house. Portland City Council donated money for the cause and newspapers visited to report on the happy living conditions. The mystery is what happens after Mother Mattie’s death. The house becomes abandoned with the residents leaving everything behind. Laundry was left on the line, dinner tables were still set for evening meals and medications as well as personal belongings were left. What happened to everyone to suddenly pick up and leave but to leave everything personal behind? That is the true mystery of Pisgah Home Colony.|
