City History

The arrival of the railroad marked the beginning of people migrating to the Cornelius area.  T.R.Cornelius, was one of the settlers who settled in the Tualatin Valley. Cornelius served 20 years in the Territorial Legislature then returned to his 1300-acre farm in 1871, and built a grain warehouse. During that time Ben Holladay built a railroad depot that consisted of a post office and a telegraph office. The area was called Free
Orchards but Holladay named his new town after the prominent storeowner T. R. Cornelius.  The City was incorporated in the spring of 1893.
