About:

Port Orford is located in Curry County, Oregon. It falls along the southern Oregon Coast, at the north end of what coastal Oregonians call the Banana Belt, because the weather is a bit warmer than their northern Oregon counterparts.

History:

Port Orford was formally founded in 1856. It would serve as a receiving port for mercantile and fishing. The port district was formally set up more than 50 years later, in 1911. It was during this time that Port Orford would become a shipping port for local Port Orford Cedar. The port was sold in 1935. However, in 1957, a little more than 100 years since the city's founding, the port was bought back. Eventually, Port Orford would see a decline in fishing and the shipping of timber would cease.
