In 1908, the Town of Willamette was developed as one of the first modern communities in the nation. With indoor plumbing, electricity and a street car, the town of Willamette provided homes and businesses serving those employed at the mill on the river. Willamette sits at the confluence of the Willamette and Tualatin rivers, just upstream from the majestic Willamette Falls, approximately 15 miles south of Portland, Oregon.
In 1913, West Linn, a compilation of several small towns and villages adjacent to Willamette, was incorporated. It is at this time that we bring you to Willamette to take a step back in time and experience life here.
