The name of the city is taken from the Tualatin River, which flows along most of the city’s northern boundary. It is probably a Native American word meaning “lazy” or “sluggish” but possibly meaning “treeless plain” for the plain near the river or “forked” for its many tributary sources.
In 1962, a fossilized mastodon was excavated in what is now the Fred Meyer parking lot. It is now on display in the lobby of Tualatin Public Library
Today, Tualatin is a vibrant community of approximately 27,000 people, many who move here to enjoy the quiet neighborhoods and the Tualatin River nearby.
