About Newberg, Oregon

NEWBERG, OREGON – A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE

About Newberg Oregon

Hoover-Minthorn House NewbergHome to many of the finest vineyards and wineries in the country, Newberg is a growing, vibrant city located in Yamhill County. Located just 25 miles southwest of Portland, it combines all the great things about small town living with all the upscale amenities of a large metropolitan area. It is the home of George Fox University, the gateway to the Oregon Coast, and lies in the heart of Oregon Wine Country.

Newberg, which was named in 1869 by the city’s first postmaster, Sebastian Brutscher, after his Bavarian hometown of Neuberg, has a rich history, one heavily influenced by the Friends Church. Quaker William Hobson in the 1870s determined the area’s rainfall and average temperature to be good for agricultural activities. He stayed, farmed, and preached, and drew many other Quakers to the area. Together with Dr. Henry Minthorn, the Quakers started Pacific Academy, which is now George Fox University.

In 1885, when he was a boy of about 11, Herbert Hoover moved to Newberg in 1885 to live with his aunt and uncle, the Minthorns, after the death of his parents. He was among the first students to attend his uncle’s school, Pacific Academy.

By 1887, Newberg had grown to a population of about 200 and in 1893 was incorporated as a city. Today, it is the second largest city in Yamhill County with a population of close to 23,000. It is surrounded by lush farms, vineyards, and wineries.
