City History

Scappoose was a meeting place of the Chinook Indians. They held annual PowWows with feasts, trading, and horse racing. The area was prime hunting grounds with herds for elk and deer and the rivers supplied spawning beds for salmon.

In 1828, Thomas McKay, stepson of John McLoughlin, the commander of Fort Vancouver was the first nonnative inhabitant. On the orders of McLoughlin, McKay found grasslands in Scappoose for the expanding herd of horses that the fort up the river needed. McKay established a home ranch and married a Chinook princess the daughter of Chief Concomley the highest ranking Chinook Indian Chief.

In 1929, the plague was brought by Captain Dominus who sailed his ship “The Owyhee” into Scappoose Bay. The Indians died in flocks because of no resistance to the plague. The first wagon train came in 1842. The first organized school came in 1853. By 1863, the Columbia River was a much traveled trade route for people and goods. In 1869, the transcontinental railroad was completed. In 1921 a charter was developed and became the City of Scappoose.
