Cherryville, Oregon

Cherryville is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States.[1] It is about six miles east of Sandy on U.S. Route 26,[2] near the route of the Barlow Road.[3]

The name of the community is said to have come from the wild cherries that grew in the area.[4] Cherryville post office was established in 1884 and closed in 1958.[4] In 1915 Cherryville had a population of 50, a public school, and a church.[5] The church building is now gone, but the church cemetery still exists.[3]
