Have You Considered Eugene, Oregon For a Mobile Home?
Eugene is the third largest city in Oregon State and one-hundred-forty-sixth in the United States. It has been named a “Great City for the Arts and Outdoors" and is also sometimes referred to as the "Emerald City" and "Track Town, USA." Eugene is most commonly known for the birthplace of the Nike Corporation.
Eugene enjoys a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, with the hottest months being July and August, recording a normal mean temperature of 66.8 to 66.9F, but can reach up to 90F for 10-15 days a year. December is the coldest month with a mean temperature of 39.7F.
The Kalapuyans (Calapooia or Calapooya) were the first people to settle in the Eugene area. They collected and preserved many local foods, storing them in their winter villages. However, when these particular activities declined, they remained in their villages and began instead to fish, hunt and trade with others. At the start of the 19th century, French fur traders settled in the Willamette Valley, in keeping with the seasons for their activities. They took Native wives, and between 1828 and 1830, they moved in permanently, keeping livestock and growing crops. In July 1830, the local native inhabitants contracted what was believed to be malaria, and between 1830 and 1841 there was a loss of more than 90% of the Kalapuya population to the disease. At the start of 1840, Anglo-American settlers arrived, and by around 1860, the remaining Kalapuyans had been moved to Indian reservations. Eugene Franklin Skinner, who gave his name to the city, arrived in 1846, together with 1,200 other settlers. He built a cabin on Skinner's Butte as a trading post which became an official post office in 1850. The now-famous University of Oregon was officially state-instituted in 1872, opening in 1876. Apart from a slight downturn caused in 1980’s with problems in the timber industry, Eugene continued to grow during the twentieth century, and by 1985, Eugene’s recovery brought in high-tech industries, leading it to be dubbed the Silicon Shire in 2012.
