Polk County, situated in the Willamette Valley in the great state of Oregon, was established on December 22, 1845, making it one of the oldest counties in the region. Named after James Knox Polk, the 11th President of the United States, the county was initially inhabited by the Kalapuya Indians, who had several territories in the area.
During the mid-19th century, following the establishment of the Provisional Government of Oregon in 1843, Euro-American settlers increasingly migrated to the region, seeking fertile land for farming. They began establishing cities and communities, with Dallas becoming the county seat in 1852. Polk County is surrounded by other notable counties, such as Yamhill County, Marion County, Benton County, and Lincoln County.
