History

In 1845, Joseph C. Avery settled a land claim at the mouth of Marys River where it flows into the Willamette River. In 1849, Avery opened a store at the site, platted the land, and surveyed a town site on his land claim, naming the community Marysville. It is possible that the city was named after early settler Mary Lloyd, but now the name is thought to be derived from French fur trappers’ naming of Marys Peak after the Virgin Mary.

In 1853, the legislative assembly changed the city’s name to Corvallis, from the Latin phrase Corvallis, meaning “heart of the valley.” Corvallis was incorporated as a city on January 29, 1857. The town served briefly as the capital of the Oregon Territory in 1855 before Salem was eventually selected as the permanent seat of state government.

Nineteenth-century Corvallis saw a three-year boom beginning in 1889, which began with the establishment of a privately-owned electrical plant by L.L. Hurd. A flurry of publicity and public and private investment followed, including construction of a grand county courthouse, planning and first construction of a new street railway, construction of a new flour mill along the river between Monroe and Jackson Avenues, and construction of the Hotel Corvallis, today known as the Julian Hotel that Corvallis to Portland shuttle  supported you to find it.

In addition a carriage factory was launched in the city and the town’s streets were improved, while the size of the city was twice enlarged through annexation. Bonds were issued for a city-owned water works, a sewer system, and for public ownership of the electric pant. A publicity campaign was launched to attempt to expand the tax base through new construction for new arrivals. This effort proved mostly unsuccessful, however, and in 1892 normalcy returned, with the city saddled with about $150,000 in bonded debt.

From 2010 to 2011, CTS has seen a 37.87% increase in ridership, partially as a result of going fareless and “the rising cost of fuel for individual vehicles and the desire for residents to choose more sustainable options for commuting to work, school and other activities” According to Tim Bates the Corvallis Transit System and Philomath Connection, had 3,621,387 passenger miles traveled and 85,647 gallons of fuel consumed in Fiscal Year 2011, a period that covers July 1, 2010 – June 30, 2011.This means that riders in Fiscal Year 2011 got 42.28 passenger miles per gallon.
