City History

In 1847 the grandson of Daniel Boone, Alphonso Boone, established the Boones Ferry which crosses the Willamette River and with that a community called Boones Landing began and later became Willsonville in 1880, named after the postmaster Charles Wilson. By 1890 the railroad had reached town and the city began to develop further. The first school was built in 1880 and was a single-room building called Wilsonville Grade School. In 1897, 12 school districts merged to create a single district in which Wilsonville was a part of. In 1912, a new 2 room school house was built to replace the 1 room school. The two room school was replaced by a modern school in the mid 1900.

In 1963 the only house in Oregon designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Gordon House, was built near what is not in the Charbonneau area. This house was moved to the Oregon Garden in 2001. Wilsonville flooded in 1964 and in 1966 the first fire station was built and the city was incorporated in 1969.

In 1973 Tektronix built a campus in the city which was later sold to Xerox. In 1988, the city opened it’s first library and it was expanded to nearly 4 times in size in 2002. Due to the continual growth of the city, Wilsonville high school was built in 1992.

Wilsonville was originally founded as Boones Landing and it was not until 1880 did it become Wilsonville.  Boones Ferry Road was the most popular road going north and south and since it was fairly level, it was easy for work animals to move cargo and people.  People traveled east and west mainly by boats on the Willamette River. If you did not own a car, you could travel by railroad.  The city was incorporated in 1969.
