Tualatin Real EstateTualatin is a vibrant community in the heart of the Oregon’s Willamette Valley, featuring year-round fun –from exciting festivals and outdoor recreation to distinctive shopping and exceptional opportunities to experience the Ice Age history of this unique region.

The name of the city is taken from the Tualatin River which flows along most of the city’s northern boundary. It is probably a native American word meaning “lazy” or “sluggish” but possibly meaning “treeless plain” for the plain near the river or “forked” for its many tributaries. According to Oregon Geographic Names, a post office with the spelling “Tualitin” was established November 5, 1869, and the spelling changed to “Tualatin” in 1915. In the 1850s, the settlement was first called Galbreath after its founder Samuel Galbreath. In 1853, Galbreath built the first bridge over the Tualatin River, and the town became known as Bridgeport. In the 1880s, John Sweek platted a town around the new railroad depot, and named the town Tualatin. It was incorporated as the City of Tualatin in 1913. In 1962, a fossilized mastodon was excavated in what is now the Fred Meyer parking lot. It is now on display in the lobby of City Hall.

Today, Tualatin has over 280 acres of well-maintained parks, trails, and natural areas. Take a hike through town along Tualatin’s ArtWalk – a self-guided tour of Tualatin’s diverse collection of public art. Tualatin is home to a first-class shopping experience with a diverse array of stores with easy access to and from all major freeways. Tualatin offers many dining and entertainment options as well! Tualatin is home to the World-renowned Giant West Coast Pumpkin Regatta, Tualatin ArtSplash, the Famous Crawfish Festival and many more festivals and special events which attract visitors of all ages.
