DescriptionNamed for the abundance of beaver dams in the area, Beaverton was established in 1868 as a shipping point on the Oregon Central Railroad. Now it is an electronics, light industry and research center. Complementing the city's industry are its almost 300 acres of vineyards and a variety of recreational facilities.
