Oswego, Clackamas County, PO 8 miles north west of Oregon City, and 7 miles south of Portland, on the west bank of the Willamette, is the seat of the Oregon Iron Works. These works are the only ones of this kind on the Pacific Coast, although Iron ore and fuel are abundant in a great number of localities. They were first put in blast in 1867, and continued for some time, and then remained closed until 1874. The ore is obtained from an inexhaustible bed a few miles distant, in Multnomah County, and returns from 40 to 65 per cent iron. Limestone, used as a flux, is found conveniently, and charcoal is cheaply made from the surrounding forests. With these facilities pig iron of a superior quality is produced at a cost of about $25 per ton. Since resuming work the business is reported as profitable. A splendid water-power is in the vicinity, easily appropriated at Oswego, which, with its other advantages, promises to make it an important manufacturing town.
