History of Wilsonville

The following video, “From Boone to Boom Town: The History of Wilsonville” by Mick Scott, was filmed on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at Wilsonville History Night, McMenamins Old Church & Pub. The event was Co-Sponsored by the Wilsonville Public Library, Wilsonville-Boones Ferry Historical Society and McMenamins.


The history of Wilsonville is best seen through the images from the Wilsonville-Boones Ferry Historical Society's photographic collection on the Emery & Alice Aden Images page. Generous donations helped support this project, including a substantial gift from the Aden family of time, work, and funds. This project was coordinated by the Wilsonville-Boones Ferry Historical Society and the Wilsonville Public Library.

You can download a PDF of the collection as well as a PDF of Wilsonville History in Photos (with commentary from Emery Aden).
