Mount Angel

Marion County, 97362

Early residents named this town after a Priest named Engleberg. Fortunately they translated it from the German. Mount Angel has several claims to fame. First I suppose is the Benedictine Abbey and Seminary that overlooks town from the only hill around. They also have a beautiful cathedral that was hit hard by the 1993 spring break earthquake. It took several years to restore it. Next comes the German culture and their famous October Fest. If you are looking for a party the October Fest is the real thing! You will have a hard time finding a parking place, but once you find one you won't want to leave. The town is surrounded by productive farms producing everthing from tulip bulbs to wine grapes.
