| Until the mid
1800’s, a small population of the Clackamas Indians
occupied the land. Diseases from the early explorers,
however, killed most of them. In 1855, the remaining
Indians gave their territory to the Federal Government
and moved to the Grand Ronde Reservation in Yamhill
County. Oswego was founded in 1847 by Albert Durham.
He named the town after his birthplace in New York.
Iron ore was discovered and in 1865, Oregon Iron Company
was incorporated. Oswego was soon booming with several
Iron companies which brought about several general
stores, churches, saloons, drugstore, hotels,
barbershops, and even an opera house. In 1886 a small
railroad between Portland and Oswego was built which
furthered development. The City of Oswego was
incorporated in 1910 and with the demise of the iron
industry, land development came alive. Paul Murphy
developed the Oswego Lake Country Club. He also
encouraged well know architects to design fine homes in
the 1930’2 and 1940’s. This is where Oswego’s
reputation began as a community of fine homes.
