The Willamette Cattle Company: The story of Ewing Young

Posted on April 1, 2015 at 7:14 am

Born in Tennessee in 1799, Ewing Young was trapping and trading fur pelts at an early age. He traveled the Santa Fe Trail all the
way to California. In 1834 he settled in Oregon Territory near the mouth of the Chehalem Creek opposite Champoeg. His house
was the first to be built by European Americans on that side of the Willamette River.
