The Birthplace of the Oregon Territory
Situated at the base of Willamette Falls, Oregon City is the historic “birthplace” of Oregon Territory. In the 1840s this community was the end of the Oregon Trail.
It remained the commercial center of the upper Willamette Valley for several years afterwards. On this walk through the historic district, we’ll see many of the sites that defined this pioneer town into the early 20th century.
We’ll enjoy a panoramic view of the river below. We’ll also see the former industrial site poised to become a mixed use riverside commercial and residential.
A special feature of this tour is a brief interior view of one of the region’s most significant Mid-Century Modern homes.
