Historic Willamette was established in 1893 upriver from Oregon City on the west side of the Willamette River. Over the next decade Willamette became the home for hundreds of power plant and mill workers and their families. The need for safe drinking water led to annexation by West Linn in 1916. Today, the historic core of old Willamette features a vibrant concentration of shops, restaurants and other services; and a compact 16 block National Register residential historic district.
