Tigard is named after one of the original settlers,
Wilson Tigard. His family arrived in 1852 in an area
known as East Butte. They were involved in building the
East Butte School, a general store and post office, and
a meeting hall. From 1907 to 1910 Main Street grew
rapidly with several new buildings due to a surge of
German settlers. In 1908, limited telephone service
began and in 1910 the Oregon Electric Railway developed
which brought about more growth. Tigardville, as it was
know then, became more than a small farming community.
In 1911 electricity was introduced and in 1930 the
streets of Main Street were paved. In 1961 the city
became incorporated and the name of the city was changed
to distinguish it from nearby Wilsonville.
