The area of Canby was once known as Baker Prairie and
was a seasonal meeting place for tribes of local
Indians. It was known for its wild strawberries.
In 1838, James Baker arrived to the area with a cattle
drive and began farming. In 1848 Anna Lee bought
squatters rights and began growing apples on 80 acres of
land. She began shipping her apples to the
California gold miners. Two years later Lee gained
title to 647 acres through a donation Land Claim Act.
This brought in many settlers to the area through the
Oregon Trail. In 1868, Joseph Knight and his four
sons came to Baker Prairie and were very instrumental in
the development of the city by opening the first general
store. They also build many businesses and held a
variety of jobs such as postmaster, sheriff, druggist,
blacksmith, carpenter, and school clerk. You can
still see William Knight’s 1874 home at 524 SW Fourth
and the 1890 Knight building on NW First which used to
serve as the meeting place for the City Council.
At this time the Willamette River was the main source of
transportation. Steamboats would take Baker
Prairie produce to Oregon City and Portland.
Eventually, Lee and Knight sold some of their land to
Canby is named after Edward Richard Sprigg Canby, a
general in the Civil War who came to Oregon to assume
command of the US Army’s Department of the Columbia.
Ben Holladay, Canby’s friend and Chief of the Oregon/
California railroad, gave the town it name Canby when it
was incorporated on February 15, 1893.
