City History

In 1905, Estacada was founded and was a camp for workers whom were building a dam on the Clackamas River to supply Portland with electricity. The Oregon Power Railway Company had to build a railway in order for the workers to get to the river to work on the construction of the dam. The railway was used as a weekend destination to the river on the weekends and used during the week to carry freight and the dam workers. Soon a trolley line was built between Estacada and downtown Portland. However now there is no rail service to Estacada and the railway line has been removed.
