Marion county is situated in the
heart of tho magnificent Willamette
valley, the central gem in tho clus
ter of rich, counties that form that
princely domain, and is tho banner
commonwealth of tho great north
west in all tho essentials that go to
wards making it a profitable abiding
place, and a homo for tho thrifty
farmer, the cunning artisan and tho
Rich in its agricultural resources,
in ita cultivated and uncultivated,
lands, in its water powers, and
minerals; rich in ita colleges and
schools of learning, and with a
climate unsurpassed for ita salubrity,
it presents to tho immigrant from
the overcrowded states, where cold
winters and hot summers, with
terrible cyclones, prevail, who
comes to tho coast with some
means, advantages that no other
county in Oregon possesses.
Much has been written of this
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
are heard from tho class who have
been misled by them, so in this
briof sketch the writer desires to
avoid oageration as to its present
and prospective advantages, asking
tnosc in tne east into wnose nanus
this may fall particularly those
who have their eyes directed towards
tms coast to peruse it careiuiiy,
feelinc that it is not written to lure
immigrants within its borders, but
only as a truthful discriptlon- of a
laud which, if it does not "flow
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on tho Pacific
side of the Rocky mountains.
Marion county is bounded on the
north by the Willamette river and
Butte creek which separates it from
Clackamas county; on tho east by
Clackamas county and tho Cascade
mountains, which separate it from
Wasco county; on tho south by the
Santiam river and the north fork of
the Santiam, separating it from
Linn county .and on the west by the
The county contains, including
valley, prairie and mountain lands,
about 000,000 acres.
There are two main divisions, the
mountain and tho valley. The
latter extends from th Willamette
river to the foot of the Cascade
mountains, a distance of about fif
The mountainous portion contains
some fourteen townships of mostly
unsurveyed land; lying in a strip
twelve miles north and south by
forty miles east and west, and com
prises all classes of land, from rich
narrow valleys in tho passes, up
through all the grades of rolling,
hilly and broken, to that of rock
bound canyons und inaccessible
craggy peaks. It Is generally heavily
timbered, and in the near future
will be valuable for its lumber sup
plies. These hills and mountains
afford a wonderful summer range
for stock, and many of the more en
terprising farmers are availing them
selves of this opportunity, and when
tho cold frosts of autumn approach,
the stock are brought out to fresh
pastures, thus enabling them to sur
vive tho winter storms with little
A decided advantage Marlon coun
ty has over many others is the di
versified farming interest that can
bo carried on throught the entire
year; notwithstbndlng this is a, wet
climate during tho winter months,
tho uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before the prairie
farmers are through with their seed
ing, tho hill fanner is preparing for
his summer work. And yet the
low lands are much preferred by
manv: tho vield ner tiorn is cenernllv
greater, and perhaps less labor Is re
quired to place the soil in proper
condition for crops; and then should
the season prove dry, tho bottom
lands are sure to bring tho best
crops. No better fanning land can
be found in the United States than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie and
Salem prairie. The soil of these are
wonderfully productive. With good
cultivation, forty bushels of wlieat
and sixty of oats per acre can bo
FACILITIES FOR MARKET. ,
The Willumette river, with two
lines of railroad running the entire
length of the county from north to
south, with the Oregon Pacific road
crossing the southeast corner of the
county, affords ample facilities to
reach a market in tiny direction.
Is tho capital of the state and
county seat of Marion county, situ
ated on the Willamette river and
on the O. & C. railroad. Costly
buildings have been erected, among
which the state capltol building,
county court house, Chemekete hotel,
opom house, new public school
building, Catholic school building,
Methodist church, Willamette Unf
vorrfty, and many private roHldonoeri
and bualnQBs: bjocks, ;wfupH wfj)
comparo favorably with older and
larger aitiea. ,
All thines considered, tho Willam
tho world, and Marion county is,
about centcmlly located therein.
To thoso seeking homes In tho west,
no hotter opportunities can bo
ofl'ered, than are found hero. Persons
desiring information regarding
Marion county or tho Willamette
