City History

Boring was named after W.H. Boring an early resident of the area. Borings unique name often seems humorous to outsiders especially when advertised as the most exciting place to live. Throughout most of the 20th century Boring was a timber town using the Portland Traction Company (a now non operational railroad) which operated a line from Portland (near OMSI) on the Willamette River to Boring by way of Gresham. Much of that line now has been purchased by the government and is known as the Springwater Corridor. In 2005, citizens applied to become a village but after many months of debate, it was not to be with a vote of 293 in favor and 298 against.
