Canby, Oregon

This picture at the right is at the Hoffman Dairy Farm.  Here is a record pumpkin.  Canby is home of many farmers and country folk.  It is also a growing city and has many of the modern day luxuries like nice shopping and nice restaurants.   Many retiring people flock to Canby to get out of the larger city into a quiet town with many great attributes.  Surprisingly enough Canby is only a 30 minute drive to downtown Portland, just up the Interstate 5 corridor.

City History

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 the railroad.  

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.
