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 and the commercial center of the upper Willamette Valley for several years afterwards. On this walk through the historic district of upper Oregon City we will see many of the sites that defined this pioneer town into the early 20th century.
We’ll also enjoy a panoramic view of the river below and the former industrial site poised to be re-purposed into a mixed use river-side commercial and residential development.
The fee for this narrated tour is $15. You may pay by check, cash or credit card at the start of the tour. You may also use PayPal by following this link: http://bit.ly/22q0waD
