LANDS AND HOMES.
the Garden Spot of
Fertility of Soil, Salubrity of Climate, Whole
some Water, Excellent Timber and
Delightful Scenery Health,
Marion county is situated in the
lieart of the magnificent Willamette
valley, the central gem in the clus
ter of rich counties that form that
princely domain, and is the banner
commonwealth of the great north
west in all the essentials that cro to
wards making it a profitable abiding
place, and a home for the thrifty
fanner, the cunning nrtisan and the
Rich in its agricultural resources,
in its cultivated and uncultivated
lands, in its water powers, and
minerals; rich in its colleges and
schools of learning, and with a
climate unsurpassed for its salubrity, ;
it, presents to tne immigrant irom
the overcrowded states, where cold
winters and hot summers, with
terrible cyclones, prevail, who
comes to the 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 the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketch the writer desires to
avoid exageration as to its present
and prospective advantages, asking
those in the east into whose liauds
this may fall particularly those
who have their eyes directed towards
this coast to peruse it carefully,
feeling that it is not written to lure
immigrants within its borders, but
only us a truthful discription of a
land which, if it does not "How
milk and honey," contains within
its bosom wealth and resources equal
to any other country on the 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 the east by
Clackamas county and the Cascade
mountains, which separate it from
Wasco county; on the 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 900,000 ncres.
There are two main divisions, the
mountain and the valley. The
latter extends from the 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 nortu nnu soutli by
forty miles east and west, and com
prises all classes of land, from rich
narrow valleys in tne passes, up
through nil the grades of rolling,
hilly and broken, to that of rock
bound canyons nnd inaccessible
craggy peaks. It is generally heavily
tinibered, nnd in the near future
will be valuable for its lumber sup
plies. These hills and mountains
ufi'ord a wonderful summer range
for stock, nnd many of the more en
terprising farmers are availing them
selves of this opportunity, nnd when
the cold frosts of autumn approach,
the stock are brought out to fresli
pastures, thus enabling them to sur
vive the winter storms with little
A decided advantage Marion coun
ty has over ninny others is the di
versified farming interest that can
bo carried on throught the entire
year; notwithstanding this is a wet
climate during the winter months,
the uplands are seldom too wet to
work, and long before the prairie
farmers are through with their seed
ing, the hill farmer is preparing for
liis summer work. And yet the
low lands are much preferred by
many; the yield per aero Is generally
greater, and perhaps less labor is re
quired to place the soil in proper
condition for crops; and then should
the season prove dry, the bottom
lands are sure to bring the best
crops. No better farming land can
be found In the United States than
that on the noted Howell prairie,
French prairie, Santiam prairie and
Salem prairie. Tlie soil of these are
wonderfully nroductive. With irood
cultivation, forty bushels of wheat
and sixty of oats per acre can be
FACILITIES FOR MARKET.
The Willamette river, with two
lines of railroad running the entire
lemrth of the county from north to
soutli, with the Oregon Pacific road
crossing the southeast corner of the
county, altbrds ample facilities to
reach a market in any direction.
Is the 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 capitol building,
county courthouse, Cheniekote hotel,
opera house, new public school
building, Catholic school building,
Methodist church, Willamette Uni
versity, and many private residences
All things considered, the Willam
ette valley has the best country in
tho world, and Marion county la
iibout ceuterally located therein.
To those seeking home in the wewt,
no better opportunities can bo
oilered, than are found here. Persons
desiring Information regarding
Marlon county or the Willamette
