All About

Living in Oregon City, OR

Apartment residents in Oregon City have the unique distinction of living in the first city west of the Rocky Mountains to be incorporated. That fact alone sets Oregon City apart as a fascinating location rich in pioneer history.

When 19th century Americans first hit the trails and headed west, many landed permanently in Oregon City, and today apartment residents can revel in their region's history through a number of popular local attractions. The Museum of the Oregon Territory contains a variety of incredible artifacts and treasures from early pioneer life in the Portland area, and Oregon City apartment residents can view exhibits on Native American life before the time of settlers, see how pioneers packed their wagons when they hit the Oregon Trail and find out how the first long distance electronic transmission was sent from Willamette Falls.

The End of the Oregon Trail Interpretative Center is also a popular draw for apartments renters, who can stand on the same ground where settlers ended their long, historic immigration from Missouri to Oregon City. It was a voyage immortalized in a renowned children's computer game, but apartment residents get to experience the real thing, as an interpreter wearing period garb walks them through the history, trials and times of early pioneers who came to Oregon City off the famous trail.

However even with the city's rich history, modern-day Oregon City is just as appealing to apartment renters for its scenic beauty and numerous amenities. The city's parks are considered a local treasure, and one green space - Carnegie Park - is the site of the Oregon City summer concert series, always popular among local residents.

What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oregon City

Our uniqueness derives from being in a community setting. Mostly corporate businesses, unfortunately!

Neighbors are friendly, houses are well maintained. I am comfortable having friends and family over.

No crime in our area. Close to schools. Great walking area. Lots of families . Everyone watches out for each other.

There's a pond with ducks a few houses down from us, and wild turkeys come down the street looking for seeds.

I love my neighbors, they are all very friendly and we look out for each other. I would trust them in my house when I am not home. We also have A block party every year and Christmas event.

It feels like the country even though your family not a half mileto the stores. The view of the mountain is always clear. There are lots of trees.
