Been to the OC lately?

By Living Room Realty, June 27, 2018

Oregon City is not just an exit off  I 205.  About 20 miles south of Portland, Oregon City is a small town situated right on the Willamette river  with a charming downtown, and is home to several truly unique landmarks that are worth exploring. Here’s a little about the top 2, check back later for more.








#1- The Oregon City Municipal Elevator.  It’s  the only one of its kind in the country and one of only four in the world.   The Elevator is  130-foot and connects  downtown Oregon City with the historic McLoughlin neighborhood. It operates 7 days a week and the ride is free.  The observation deck at the top is shaped like a flying saucer and was completed in 1955. The original water powered version was built in 1915, which brings us to:


#2-Willamette Falls- a horseshoe shaped waterfall and the Second Largest waterfall in the US (by volume)!  It’s 42 ft high, and 1,500 ft wide with the oldest continuously operating multi-lift lock and canal system in the United States.
