City History

Robin’s Nest is the name Robert Moore gave to the town he built in 1840. He purchased the land from the Wallamut Indians and built a cabin, flour and lumber mills, and places for his worker’s to live. In 1845, he changed the name to Linn City after his friend Dr. Lewis Linn the U.S. senator from Missouri.

Moore dies in 1857 and shortly after there was a fire burnt down the sawmill, gistmill, and even a ship that was docked. Business men built back some of the city but then a year later floods destroyed their work. In 1868, the Willamette Transportation Locks Co. started operation and they are still in operation today. In 1913, West Linn was incorporated
