The City of Milwaukie has a rich and vibrant history. The word Milwaukie is believed to derive from a Potawatomi Indian word meaning “fine land” or possibly “council place” (see Wisconsin Historical Society).  Before the arrival of American and European explorers and settlers, the Milwaukie area was part of the homeland of the Clackamas Indians, members of the Upper Chinook language group who occupied much of present-day Clackamas County.

The City of Milwaukie was settled by the Luelling family, orchardists from Iowa in 1847, and formally claimed and settled by pioneer entrepreneur Lot Whitcomb  in 1848.  Whitcomb named the town site after the city in Wisconsin out of admiration for that growing Midwest metropolis.  Much of Milwaukie’s initial fame would stem from the agricultural pursuits of the town founders Seth Lewelling and Henderson Luelling, brothers who are credited with developing the Bing cherry.
