Rich in history, Oregon City was the first city west of The Rocky Mountains to incorporate. Today it serves as the County Headquarters of Clackamas County. Sensibly enough, the city was founded in the year 1829 by John McLoughlin of the Hudson Bay Company at the confluence of the Clackamas and Willamette Rivers. The site was chosen in order to use Willamette Falls to power a lumber mill. It was also the destination of early pioneers who traveled via the Oregon Trail in the 1840′s-50′s. Those pioneers seeking to claim land had to file in Oregon City; which served as the Territory’s Capital from 1848 to 1851. The local newspaper (The Oregon Spectator) was first published in 1846 and became the first newspaper west of the Rockies. Today the area hangs on to some of its past with historic buildings and homes.
