Oregon City ...
Oregon City is located along the Willamette River between River Miles (RM) 25 and 27. Oregon City stretches between the mouth of the Clackamas River and the Willamette Falls, a spot where the Willamette River spills about 40 feet over horseshoe-shaped basalt ridge. Lewis and Clark made many references to the "falls of the Multnomah" and the Indian tribe which lived there. The falls were a major salmon fishing location and and important part of the development of the community of Oregon City, as they furnished power for a lumber mill (1842), a flour mill (1844), a woolen mill (1864), and the first paper mill in the Pacific Northwest (1867).
