About Lake Oswego
Lake Oswego is a community rich with art, culture, historical resources, quality schools, vibrant business districts, and an abundance of activities and events for all ages.
The town of “Oswego” was founded in 1847 by Albert Alonzo Durham. He secured the first Donation Land Claim and named the town after his birthplace in New York. He built the town’s first industry–a sawmill on Sucker Creek (now Oswego Creek).
Residential development around the perimeter of Oswego Lake accelerated in the 1940s and 1950s. With the annexation of part of Lake Grove to the west in 1960, the name of the city was changed to Lake Oswego.
Today, Lake Oswego is considered one of the finest upscale residential communities in Oregon.
