Oregon City was the first incorporated city west of the Rocky Mountains. It was established in 1829 by Dr. John McLoughlin. His goal was to take advantage of the potential hydroelectric power from the falls of the Willamette River to build a lumber mill. In the 1840’s, the city was the final destination for travelers along the Oregon Traill. Once they reached Oregon City, they could file land claims promised by the U.S. Government. From 1848 to 1851, Oregon City was the capital of Oregon Territory. Today, Oregon City is a fascinating place with several museums dedicated to its rich history, including the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, which features presentations, films, and interactive exhibits on a variety of trail related topics.
