Forest Grove, Oregon

 

Forest Grove is the historic home of the Tualatin tribe. In 1849 pioneers settled the community that today is Forest Grove. That same year Pacific University was founded, making it one of the first educational institutions in the western United States.

The City of Forest Grove was incorporated in 1872, named for a large grove of Oregon white oak growing on a knoll rising over the Tualatin Plains. Forest Grove has been named a Tree City USA since 1990, is particularly identifiable for its population of non-native giant sequoia growing there.
