City History

Oregon City is the oldest incorporated city west of the Rockies. It was established in 1829 and was incorporated in 1844. It first became the home to fur traders and missionaries. Since it was the end of the Oregon Trail, it became the final destination for many early immigrants. Prior to settlement, the area was a focal point for fishing and trade among the N Indians. Smallpox, cholera and other diseases introduced by early explorers killed the tribes. After the remnants of the tribes were relocated to the Grand Ronde reservation, they became extinct. In 1850 when the first steamboat on the Willamette River, the "Lot Whitcomb," was built a new industry developed. Agriculture increased as it could be shipped to other places. Because the falls initially required the movement of freight from one ship to another, shipbuilding enterprises developed above the falls and below the falls. With the railroads there was more industrial growth between 1866 to 1883.
