Welcome to Multnomah County!
Portland in 1858
Multnomah County is located along the northern border of the state of Oregon, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. Multnomah County was created from Washington and Clackamas counties by an act of the Oregon Territorial Legislature on December 22, 1854.
While it is Oregon's smallest county in area, it is the largest county in population. Portland is the largest city in the county, and the state.
The Oregon State Archives has a concise history of the county.

This page is part of the USGenWeb Project. Modeled after the Kentucky GenWeb Project which was organized by a group of genealogists in March and April 1996, the idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In June 1996, it was decided to expand the project to include all states.
