Turner Oregon

The Santiam Kalapuya Indians occupied this area prior to settlement in 1843.  Turner was founded in 1871 when the Oregon and California Railroad was built in the area.  The rail station constructed at the site was named in honor of Henry Turner, a well-known flour mill owner and pioneer in the area.  The city of Turner, OR is nicknamed “the Good Neighbor Town.”

Turner is located just five minutes southeast of Salem. While downtown Turner lacks some of the charm of some of the other small communities, it makes up for it with stunning views.  Many areas of Turner offer gorgeous valley views of rolling hills, as well as views of the Cascade range.

Within the town itself there is a lot of new construction as the lots tend to be larger than what is offered in nearby Salem. There are also some old houses that need restoration in the original part of the city.  Turner has been going through a lot of changes and growth as it is right next to Salem and has good highway access.
