Much of Canby's development centered around the rich agricultural land and prime location in the Willamette Valley. On the high plateau, bordered by the Willamette and Molalla Rivers, Canby was once the seasonal meeting place for tribes of local Indians and was well known for its annual crop of wild strawberries. The city of Canby was known as Baker's Prairie when it was first founded in 1857. William Knight and four sons moved to Baker Prairie in 1868. They were instrumental in Canby's early development as they opened one of the first general stores, built many local buildings, served as postmaster, school clerk, sheriff, druggist, blacksmith, carpenter and more. William Knight's 1874 home still stands at 525 SW Fourth Avenue as does the 1890 Knight Building on NW First Avenue, the original meeting place of City Council and first home of Carlton & Rosenkrans, "Clackamas County's largest department store." Canby is named for Edward Richard Sprigg Canby, hero of the Civil and Indian Wars, who had arrived in Oregon only one week earlier to assume command of the U.S. Army's Department of the Columbia and the new town was given this hero's name. The towns of Canby in Modoc County, California and Canby in Yellow Medicine County, Minnesota are also named after him. The city was platted in 1870 and incorporated by the Oregon Legislative Assembly on February 15, 1893.
