Grant County, 97820

The heart of the western frontier

Canyon City, like many gold rush towns has a colorful past. At one time during the 1860's it had a larger population (about 10,000) than Portland! These people actually have a 'Boot Hill' cemetery. You can check it out on the aerial photo. The town finally grew up to become the county seat of Grant county.
