Located in Multnomah County and immediately east of Portland in the state of Oregon. Gresham is just minutes away from the iconic Mount Hood, Columbia River, and Multnomah Falls. The area was first settled by brothers Jackson and James Powell, who claimed the land as their under the Donation Land Claim Act of 1850 and was soon joined by the rest of the pioneer families. The city's economy, during its early years, activities were primarily sustained by farming. When the population boomed in the middle of the 20th century, the residents' number grew from 4,000 to 10,000 residents. Gresham considers itself to be a community that is hard-working and welcoming, where the heritage and tradition meet opportunity and innovation. The city's strategic location is ideal for families and businesses who wish to start something new.
