If you are looking for La Grande Real Estate this is the web site to use. There’s quite a bit of history of La Grande, the community was established in 1863 during the Oregon Trail Days.  It was a popular stop in the Blue Mountain Oregon Trail Crossing.  The old town was first established along B street and C Street.  When the railroad was being built the new development began to occur near the rail road which was about a good mile from old town.  Over time the town grew together.  There are still some older structures in the old town section of La Grande.  The name of La Grande came from a Frenchman who looked over the valley from what is Ladd Canyon.  His remarks were what a grand valley.  This remark became the name of the Grand Ronde Valley and La Grande.  One of the early settlers was Benjamin Brown who was with the first group of settlers interring into the Grande Ronde Valley.  In the early days there was mining and a good number of saw mills, cattle ranches and flower mills.  Orchards began to sprout in the valley and around the foot hills.  At the turn of the 20th century La Grande’s population grew to about 3,000.  Today the populations is around 13,000 and growing.  There is a strong economy with new homes being built as well as apartments that are meeting the needs of housing.  Community leaders also have created the La Grande Business & Technology Park that is a fully service park that is shovel ready. La Grande is also home to the county seat.
