The name of the city is taken from the Tualatin River, which flows along most of the city's northern boundary It is probably a Native American word meaning "lazy" or "sluggish" but possibly meaning "treeless plain" for the plain near the river or "forked" for its many tributaries6 According to Oregon Geographic Names, a post office with the spelling "Tualitin" was established November 5, 1869, and the spelling changed to "Tualatin" in 1915

In the 1850s, the settlement was first called Galbreath after its founder Samuel Galbreath In 1853, Galbreath built the first bridge over the Tualatin river, and the town became known as Bridgeport In the 1880s, John Sweek platted a town around the new railroad depot, and named the town Tualatin It was incorporated as the City of Tualatin in 19137

In 1962, a fossilized mastodon was excavated in what is now the Fred Meyer parking lot It is now on display in the lobby of Tualatin Public Library8
