City History

William Newby was on the first wagon train that arrived in Oregon. In 1853, he built a gristmill that was the main reason the area was able to grow. Newby came from McMinnville, Tennessee which is where the name came from. During the early days, the area was a thriving agricultural area. It had 300 inhabitants. In 1876 McMinnville was incorporated as a town and then again in 1882 as a city. In 1886 the county seat was moved to McMinnville from Lafayette. Many of the building that were built between 1885 and 1912 are still intact on Third Street.
