Some sources trace the origins of of this town to the Damascus Post Office; which opened in 1867 and closed in 1904 (sine the year 2007 the Damascus Post Office has been re-opened and operated within a local coffee shop). The Unincorporated areas of Damascus and Carver developed slowly over time as mixed farming and residential use land. In the year 2000 Portland Metro made motions to annex it and its sister-community of Carver into Portland which prompted local residents to incorporate Damascus and Carver into the City of Damascus through ballot measure 3-138. A 2005 vote approved the newly founded city’s Charter and protected the city from being annexed into Portland, Oregon. Today citizens of Damascus enjoy their close proximity to the nearby communities of Clackamas, Happy Valley, Boring and Gresham.
