Henry Clay Smith House
350 Winston Section Road
Built 1924

Henry Clay Smith married Edna Winston, daughter of William Winston. The union of the pioneer families contributed to the importance of the prune industry to the economy of Douglas County.

Smith cultivated 160 acres. The Smith prune dryer was the largest along the South Umpqua bottomland.

The dryer was converted into a soft drink bottling plant by Louis J. Fullerton, who purchased the property in 1941. The surviving orchards are planted with peaches, pears, and prunes.
