Family-Friendly. Business-Ready. Gateway to the Molalla Corridor.


Get Involved

Welcome to Molalla

For over 100 years, the City of Molalla has prided itself on its rural roots, necessarily reinventing itself a few times in the process.  It has gone from the world’s biggest source of teasel to a successful logging town, and along the way farms and ranches have succeeded in this small city in the fertile Willamette Valley.  The industries still exist – farms and ranches and the more modern nurseries and microfarms.  Molalla is a home to industry and a gateway to some stunning outdoors – just up the Molalla river in our own back yard. We have great restaurants, amazing history, and we’re surrounded by activities – whether it’s fishing, hunting, hiking, or rodeo.  Take a look around, and let us be the first to say, “Welcome to Molalla.”

An important year in Molalla

1913 turned out to be quite a year for Molalla.  Molalla became The City of Molalla, the first steam engine came to town, and it was the first year of the Molalla Buckeroo.

Molalla Then and Now

Molalla’s roots are still very much in tact.  As you drive around town and out into the countryside, you’ll find productive ranches and farms, logging operations, industry and commerce.

Molalla is the gateway to an amazing corridor for nature lovers. Come explore all Molalla has to offer...


Take a drive thru the country. See the farms, the ranches, the rivers, the trees. It's a drive you soon won't forget.

We moved out here for the property. We stayed for the small country feel and the lovely community.
