Swedish emigrants settled down in a number of places all over Oregon. One of the places they settled (ca. 1890’s) was called Colton or Carlsborg (a name that was chosen since all three original founders happened to be named Carl, even though the founders may have had Swedish Carlsborg in mind as well) which is located ca. 28 miles or 45 kilometers southeast of Portland, Oregon, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
Colton is an unincorporated community located in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States, on Oregon Route 211. Colton is located between the cities of Estacada and Molalla.
According to Oregon Geographic Names, Colton was named about 1892 by two residents, Joshua Gorbett and a man named Cole, who each wanted to name the community after the other. The Post Office Department thought “Gorbett” would be confused with Corbett, so the community was named “Colton” instead. The Colton post office was established the same year. The community has historically had a large Swedish population, and was once a significant logging town. Today the economy is dominated by horticulture and Christmas tree farming.
