Oregon cities named after…

On a recent road trip for work, I was struck by how many cities and towns in Oregon are named after other big cities. Although I did not look up every one of these, the towns I did Google received their names because the founders were from the originating city.
  • Portland, Oregon ~ Portland, Maine
  • Salem, Oregon ~ Salem, Massachusetts
  • Springfield, Oregon ~ Springfield, Illinois
  • Eugene, Oregon ~ Eugene, Missouri
  • Newport, Oregon ~ Newport, New Hampshire
  • Phoenix, Oregon ~ Phoenix, Arizona
  • Nashville, Oregon ~ Nashville, Tennessee
  • Detroit, Oregon ~ Detroit, Michigan
  • Pendleton, Oregon ~ Pendleton, Illinois
  • Ontario, Oregon ~ Ontario, California
  • Taft, Oregon ~ Taft, California
  • St. Helens, Oregon ~ St. Helens, Washington
  • Sweet Home, Oregon ~ Sweet Home Alabama, okay that’s a song, but you get the point.
I am sure there are more. Kind of interesting!
