PORT OF TOLEDO
The Port of Toledo, Oregon was established in 1910 in order to develop marine commerce. The original Commission's first goal was to establish a 14' deep channel from the Yaquina Bay to Depot Slough to support the movement of wood products.
In 1977 Elmer Price authored History Port of Toledo to document the Port's first 67 years.
