Moving to Oregon City

If you travel 30 minutes south of Portland, down SE McLoughlin Blvd or Route 224, you will find yourself in the charming city of Oregon City. Oregon City was the original capital of Oregon State, is the current County Seat for Clackamas County, and was the first city to be incorporated west of the Rocky Mountains. Although the city is small in size, covering just 9.3 square miles, the community is vibrant and welcoming, and the area is known for its deep historic routes and natural beauty.

Looking for the best Oregon City movers? PDX Movers is a trusted local moving company because of our commitment to top-tier customer service. We’ve already helped hundreds of families settle into their new homes, and in return, our customers have awarded us with numerous 5-star reviews.

How many people live in Oregon City? The answer is 35,483 (give or take a few people!). Among the local population, the median age is 38, 56% of residents are married and 53% of the population consists of families with children under 18. While the majority of locals were born and raised in Oregon, more than a third of the population relocated here from out of state.

Like much of the State, Oregon City is characterized by its steep hills on one side, and the Willamette and Clackamas Rivers on the other. In fact, while Oregon City’s lowest point is just 10 feet above sea level, some parts of the municipality are more than 500 feet above sea level. Despite getting plenty of rain, the city only gets about 2 inches of snow per year and enjoys a mild climate with temperatures between 35-82 degrees.

The cost of living in Oregon City is about 17% higher than the national average and only slightly higher than the state average. Most folks living here own their residences and paid a median home price of $294,400 for their houses. Nearly one-third of locals choose to rent instead and pay around $1,000 per month for their apartments or condos.

Oregon City locals benefit from both a thriving local economy and the area’s close proximity to Portland and its surrounding suburbs. That means there is always plenty of work available when you live in this community! The median household income in Oregon City is $68,813, which is higher than the Portland MSA’s median, as well as the national median. Major industries in the area include retail trade, advanced manufacturing, and healthcare, and top employers include Industrial Metal Works and Northwest Precision Fabricators.
