Oregon Map

North Willamette Valley

Washington, Yamhill, Polk, Multnomah, Clackamas, and north Marion counties


Marion County,

If you like history you will love this area. Butteville is the nearest settlement to Champoeg State park, the site of the famous vote that decided whether Oregon country would be British or French. The town itself still has the Butteville Store, about the only commercial effort there. Rich folk have moved in and built their mansions along the Willamette River there so one really sees the "old and the new" together. I tried to take a few new photos the other day but missed a turn and ended up in Champoeg (Nov. 2012). Well, I finally have those new photos posted, January, 2017.
