On August 22 the City of Wilsonville is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a citywide 'block party' in Town Center Park. We're joining the fun with a series of photographic evidence of just how far the city has come since 1846. To find out more about Wilsonville's history go to or visit the Heritage section in the Wilsonville Library.

One of the two-story buildings on the right still stands at the corner of 5th Street and Boones Ferry. Now a residence, it was previously a dance hall, feed store, rolling skating rink and a movie house.
