Today's West Linn, Oregon, was incorporated in 1913, merged with the neighboring town of Willamette in 1916, and was given its original name. There was also a small town on Willemette that was annexed to WestLinn Oregon in 1912, which was incorporated into the area in 1914.
Willamette was incorporated in 1908 and the city of West Linn was incorporated in 1913, but the two cities merged in 1916. Willamettes was incorporated into the WestLinn area in 1912, and a small town on Willemette was added in 1914. Today's West Winn, Oregon, was founded in 2013 and merged with neighboring Will Amette, which was incorporated as WillAmette in 2008. The city of Westlinn was incorporated in 1913 and merged into a separate town in 1915.
The city of West Linn was incorporated in 1913 and includes parts of Will Amette, Willamette and Willemette, as well as parts of the West Winn area. Since its inception, it has covered a total of about 2,000 square kilometres of land.
Most of the two fields land claims were sold in the 1880s to the Oregon Iron and Steel Company, which harvested timber for its mining activities. In 1845, the first land claim in West Linn, near the present-day town of Will Amette, sold for $200. It was incorporated five years later and became part of Portland in 1891.
The Multnomah City of Oswego and Milwaukie, located on the Willamette River between Oregon City and Portland, were thrown into the ring, but none of them were able to build a network to tap into the population and agricultural production in the surrounding hinterland. The Dalles and Eagle Creek, traders who sent delegations to distract Oregon immigrants, and roads were set on fire so they didn't have to pass them at all.
In 1845, the terminal's upper portage was established, and by 1846, about 15 houses were occupied by men employed in Moore's flour and wood mills and working on the ferry he established to connect Oregon City. In 1861, a wooden "Portage Railroad" was built between Canemah and Oregon. A bridge designed by renowned engineer Conde McCullough was also built to connect West Linn and Oregon City in 1864, with a bridge over the Willamette River between the two cities. Today there are no fewer than eleven spans that cross the Willamette between Oregon City and the Columbia River, but the first was built in 1887.
The Oregon Steam Navigation Company owned Captain Ainsworth, Henry Corbett operated the California Stage Line, and Simeon Reed and William Ladd owned seventeen farms. In 1843, Linnton, a town named after Senator Linn, was founded by William Moore, the founder of Moore's flour and timber company in Oregon City. Moore called the city Robin's nest and built a flour and wood mill on the site, but renamed it "Linn City" in honor of Missouri Senator Lewis L Finn, who was one of the first American politicians to argue that the United States should claim Oregon as its territory.
Robert Moore came to Willamette Valley in 1839 and eventually bought 1,000 acres in what is now West Linn. He immediately bought the land from the Wallamut, a group of Native Americans in Oregon City, Oregon, which is now WestLinn, and had the settlement occupied for several years until he bought another 2,500 acres of land near the present-day town of Linnton. Robert Moore had bought 1000 hectares of land from both the Wallamuts and the headstrong Indians.
He came to Oregon in 1842 with Elijah Whitman's party and led Marcus Whitman east through the winter. He returned with a wagon that is widely regarded as the opening of the Oregon Trail. Pettygrove was a successful businessman in Maine and had similar success in Oregon, where he ran a grocery store in the city of Oregon City and a hotel in Portland. In 1845, he ran a ferry to Oregon City and rented tents to immigrants arriving on the Portland Trail and other immigrants from other parts of the United States.
