City History

The name of the city is taken from the Tualatin River. In 1853, Samuel Galbreath began a ferry service crossing the Tualatin River from a village he called "Galbreath". The town's name was changed to "Bridgeport" when Galbreath built the first bridge across the Tualatin River in 1856. At that time the city thrived with a blacksmith shop, boarding house, general store, and saloon. According to Oregon Geographic Names, a post office with the spelling "Tualitin" was established November 5, 1869, and the spelling changed to "Tualatin" in 1915. In 1886, Tualatin expanded with the building of the railroad. In 1890, John L. Smith established a sawmill close to the river. With other investors, Smith incorporated the Tualatin Mill Company and quickly monopolized local logging and lumbering. Smith's mill, was the largest reason for the growth of Tualatin at the time. In 1906, the Oregon Electric Railroad's Portland-Salem line came to town and changed the city's center again. The City of Tualatin was incorporated in 1913 and an official government was formed.
