Journey through the History of Estacada
Featuring stunning a collection of vintage photographs
This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.
Estacada, incorporated in 1905, is located in the foothills of the Cascade Range. The town owes its existence to the construction of the first hydroelectric dams along the narrow canyons of the scenic Clackamas River.
For eight decades, Estacada was prominent in the timber industry. Today, the main attractions are the area’s outstanding beauty, its growing art community, and its many recreational opportunities such as camping, hunting, fishing, and boating.
About 2,400 people live in the incorporated city of Estacada, but the majority of a population of 18,000 lives in the unincorporated towns that surround it. These communities were settled as early as 1847 and boasted their own schools, churches, businesses, and post offices long before the incorporation of Estacada. Their lush histories provide a colorful foundation for the people and areas now collectively referred to as Estacada.
