Welcome to the beautiful and quaint town of Donald, Oregon. The City has a rich history in agriculture, industry, business, and family. Sometime during the period of 1840 to 1860 Donald was first settled by farmers and loggers from the Midwest. By the early 1900’s Donald was a main station for the Oregon Electric Railway. From its railway heritage is how the city’s name came about. The City was named after R.L. Donald who was an official of the construction company that built the railway. The railroad in Donald is heavily used today. Donald became an incorporated city December 6, 1912 and 2012 marked the City’s 100th anniversary.

The City is located 24 miles south of Portland and 27 miles north of Salem in the stunning Willamette Valley. Champoeg State Heritage Park, which is one of the State of Oregon’s most notable landmarks, is just four miles west. Six miles east of town is Wes Lematta Field at Aurora State Airport, Oregon’s third busiest airport. Donald’s unique location provides easy
access to some of Oregon’s biggest cities and attractions while remaining a small rural community.
