Aloha, Oregon can trace its roots back to the year 1912 when the Aloha post office opened. Before this, the region was simply referred to as Wheeler’s Crossing.

ton has a long history in Oregon. Natives had a village named “Chakeipi” which means “place of the beaver”. Similarly, early settlers referred to the area as “Beaverdam” due to large bodies of water created by beavers. In 1893, the city of Beaverton was incorporated and boasted a population of 400 people. The city of Beaverton has grown considerably over the years, with recent estimates indicating a population of 86,205 people. In addition, Beaverton has made a ten year plan to annex several nearby unincorporated neighborhoods including Cedar Mill, Bethany, Aloha, Cedar Hills, West Slope, Raleigh Hills and Garden Home. If all of these neighborhoods were included in Beaverton today its population would be 280,000 people, making it the second largest city in Oregon. Although support for annexation is mixed, city officials maintain that these areas are directly benefiting from the city without bearing any of the financial responsibility. Regardless of questions regarding annexation, the Beaverton real estate market remains a fast-growing area with much to offer.

Originally a small farming community to the west of the Portland Metro Area, today Forest Grove is something of a bedroom community for Portland, Beaverton and Hillsboro. This community is the oldest in Washington County, with its origins in the 1840’s when early pioneers first settled the Tualatin River Valley. Pacific University is a long-time fixture in the city providing higher education for the region.

Interestingly, the old “Oregon Electric Railway” which served the region starting 1908 means that Forest Grove was “green” before it was cool. Although this early, trailblazing effort at green transportation folded in 1932 it was certainly an early sign of things yet to come. With its rich local history, there are multiple homes and buildings throughout the area that are on the Registry of National Historic Places. But don’t worry there’s also plenty of new homes to choose from in this area.

Today, West Linn is a prosperous suburb of Portland and is home to about 25,000 residents.
