After leading innovative fur brigades in California, Ewing Young came to Portland in 1834 and settled himself on the west bank of the Willamette River. Young’s home is understood to be the first house built by European-Americans on the west side of the river. In 1848, Joseph Rogers later settled nearby at what is now known as Newberg.
In the beginning stages, this area was known as Chehalem, and later was changed to Roger’s Landing after Rogers who was the founder of the settlement. Rogers died in 1855.
Newberg is the first community in Oregon to host Quaker services. Incidentally in 1889 the town’s newspaper, the Newberg Graphic, was established the same year the city became incorporated.
Founded by the Quakers in 1885 was Friends Pacific Academy which is now George Fox University. Named a “Best Value” school by U.S. News & World Report, George Fox University is a first-tier regional university. University-owned housing surrounds the school and the campus resides in the center of the town.
In 1885, Herbert Hoover moved to Newberg to live with his aunt and uncle after his parents died. Hoover was one of the very first students to attend his uncle’s Pacific Academy. His home was eventually turned into the Hoover-Minthorn House museum.
