State of Oregon - Dallas, Polk County

Dallas, Polk County, PO and County Seat, lies on the north side of the La Creole, or Rickreal River. 15 miles west of Salem. This is a flourishing Inland town, in the midst of a very fertile section, and is distinguished for the energy and enterprise of its citizens. The town was incorporated by Act of the last Legislature with a charter prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors, except on the prescription of a practicing physician. The La Creole, which runs through the town, has sufficient power to turn the machinery for numerous manufactories, among which is the largest tannery in the State, a large wagon factory, flouring and other mills. The La Creole Academy is a flourishing institution. The town contains three churches, and Lodges of Odd Fellows, Masons, and Good Templars. The coast range of mountains rise a few miles to the west, and the broad valley of the Willamette extends far to the east, giving surroundings of picturesque scenery and a country as lovely as it is fertile. One newspaper, the Dallas Itemizer, is published weekly.
