Historyedit

Alphonso Boone, the grandson of Daniel Boone, settled in what would later become Wilsonville in 1846 and established the Boones Ferry across the Willamette River in 18477 The ferry gave rise to the community of Boones Landing, which eventually grew into Wilsonville7 Originally, the area was part of what became Yamhill County, but was transferred to the current Clackamas County in 18558 The first post office was established in 1876 with the name, Boones Ferry8

Wilsonville became the name of the community on June 3, 1880,9 named after the first postmaster, Charles Wilson10 That same year the first school, Wilsonville Grade School, was opened as a single-room building11 By 1890, the railroad had reached town and the community contained depot, several hotels, a saloon, a tavern, a bank, and several other commercial establishments8 In 1897, the twelve school districts in the vicinity of Wilsonville up to Lake Oswego merged to create a single district12 A railroad bridge was built across the river for the Oregon Electric Railway beginning in 19068 The bridge was completed the next year and service from Wilsonville south to Salem began in 19088

A new Methodist church was built in the community in 1910, which was used until 1988 and is still standing13 Two years later, a new two-room school replaced the old one-room school, which in turn was replaced by a modern school in the mid 1900s, all on the same property11 In 1939, the wooden trestle part of the railroad bridge across the Willamette caught fire and burned8 Boones Ferry was decommissioned after the Boone Bridge opened in 1954 carrying what was then the Baldock Freeway, and is today Interstate 57

In 1961, the Dammasch State Hospital mental hospital opened on the west side of the community8 Gordon House, the only house in Oregon to be designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, was built in 1963 near what became Charbonneau and moved to the Oregon Garden in 200114 Wilsonville was flooded in 1964 and the first fire station was built in 19668 Wilsonville was incorporated as a city in 1969 with a population of about 1,0001516 In 1971, the planned community of Charbonneau on the south side of the river was annexed into the city the year after development began1216

Tauchman House at Boones Ferry Park

Tektronix built a campus in the city beginning in 1973, which was later sold to Xerox16 The following year Wilsonville's city hall relocated from Tauchman House at what is now Boones Ferry Park to a trailer and the next year the first city manager was hired8 A standalone post office was built in 1976 at Boones Ferry and Wilsonville roads, with city police protection added in 19798 In 1980, the city reached a population of 2,920, and in 1982 the library was opened16 The next year, a new city hall was opened, replacing a trailer that had served as city hall since 197516

In 1988, the city opened their first library building, which replaced the one-room library located in space leased from the school district17 The population grew to 7,106 at the 1990 census, and in 1991 the Town Center Shopping Center along Wilsonville Road opened1618 Due to growth in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District, the school board approved building a new high school to be located in Wilsonville in 199212

Author Walt Morey owned an estate in Wilsonville and after his death in 1992, his widow sold the property to a developer The housing development built on that property, Morey's Landing, bears his name as does the children's section of the Wilsonville Public Library19 Walt Morey Park, a bear-themed park located in Morey's Landing, contains a life-size 8-foot-tall wooden statue of Morey's most famous literary creation, Gentle Ben20

Living Enrichment Center, a New Thought Church with as many as 3,000 members, was headquartered in Wilsonville from 1992 until 200421 The church closed that year after problems that including money laundering by the church leaders led to the bankrupting of the church22

In 1995, Dammasch State Hospital was closed by the state of Oregon, and the site was then proposed as a location for what became the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility, which opened in 2001 at a different site to the north of the old hospital grounds23 In protest of the construction of the prison, specifically the effect on property values, Larry Eaton began erecting school buses on his property24 The former grounds of the state hospital are, as of 2009, under development as Villebois, a primarily residential complex Also in 1995, Wilsonville High School opened as part of the West Linn-Wilsonville School District, the first high school in the city's history16 In 1998, lack of an adequate long-term water supply forced the city to suspend adding any new developments to the city16 A new water treatment plant on the Willamette River opened in 2002 to address this need16

The Wilsonville Public Library was expanded to nearly four times the size of the 7,500-square-foot 700 m2 1988 building with an expansion finished in 200225 Wilsonville Primary School was closed in June 2001, and later sold with the property and turned into a shopping center, anchored by an Albertsons supermarket2627 In September 2006, Wilsonville opened a new $99 million, two-story brick and steel city hall after a controversy concerning its location led to unsuccessful attempts to recall several elected officials in the city, including the mayor28
