St. Helens is the county seat of Columbia County, Oregon. It was founded by Captain H. M. Knighton, a native of New England, in 1845 as “Plymouth”. The name was changed to St. Helens in the latter part of 1850 for its breathtaking view of Mount St. Helens some 39 miles away in Washington. St. Helens was incorporated as a city in 1889. St. Helens was established as a river port on the Columbia River in the 1840s. In 1853, the Pacific Mail Steamship Company tried to make the city their only stop on the Columbia River. Portland’s merchants boycotted this effort, and the San Francisco steamship Peytona helped break the impasse.
Although there are many businesses, two hotels, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants on Columbia River Highway, that’s not all there is to see. Turn right at the light on Columbia Boulevard and you’ll enter the upper end of town, known as the Houlton District, which has its own unique character. There you’ll find the Chamber of Commerce, a bakery, various shops and businesses, banks, and a grocery store as you travel through town to the River.
Be certain not to miss visiting some of St. Helens many sights to see and events to be a part of. ‘Henry Knighton’ Days in June, the Christmas Ships in December and throughout the summer enjoy 13 Nights on the River, a free concert series featuring musicians you’ll pay big money to see in concert elsewhere. The venue is beautiful – musicians perform in the Gazebo in Columbia View Park, with the Columbia River, Sand Island and the Washington shore as a backdrop.
