In 1872, sea captain John Harlow bought the town’s original land claim, building an expansive estate replete with trout ponds that he called “Troutdale.” He convinced the railroads to build a depot near his home, and the name stuck. Also called “the gateway to the Columbia River Gorge,” Troutdale is known for its fishing spots and antiques stores.
