Welcome to the City of Vernonia Website

Vernonia citizens are hard working, friendly and consistently willing to lend a hand to help their neighbor, which makes Vernonia a great community in which to live. Whether you have chosen to make Vernonia your new home or are here for a visit; I'm sure you'll find you have made a wise choice.

Welcome to Historic Vernonia, a city with a proud past and a bright future. The City of Vernonia was incorporated in 1891 with a population of 69 residents. The current population is approximately 2,260 citizens. Vernonia history is deeply rooted in the timber industry, but now includes a variety of businesses and attractions. Vernonia offers the best of two worlds; a convenient proximity to the metropolitan area to access all that it offers, but far enough off the beaten path to unwind in the peace of the countryside. Vernonia provides a quality of life that is unique.

Vernonia offers a diversity of activities sure to please everyone. Hunting, fishing, camping, fossil-digging, biking, hiking, trail walks, bird-watching, shopping, or the joy of raising a family away from the hustle and bustle of the big city - it's all here. Annual festivals include St. Patricks Day in the spring, Vernonia Friendship Jamboree in the summer and the Salmon Festival in the fall. In Vernonia, we love to celebrate what we have and can't wait to share it with others.

Welcome to our City!
Mayor Randall J. Parrow
