||The first public building in Oregon was a jail - the first jail west of the Rocky Mountains. And it was built in Oregon City. It was two stories tall, 18 feet square and made of wood.
||The jail burns down under mysterious circumstances.
||A second jail is built. In addition, a 8-by-4-foot steel box may have been used as a temporary jail when other accommodations weren't available. It was windowless, seated two - uncomfortably - and may be over 150 years old.
||The County's fifth courthouse is built in Oregon City, and the County Jail moves into the basement. There are reports of prisoners talking to the public through the bars.
||The sixth and final courthouse opens at the same location in 1937. Its basement jail became overcrowded - and a determined prisoner could reportedly cut through the weak steel grating with a knife. The federal government refused to approve it for holding federal prisoners.
||The Clackamas County Jail is built at its current site in Oregon City. It has a capacity of about 86 prisoners.
||The Jail is remodeled, and an addition constructed - raising its capacity to 164.
||Another addition is constructed to accommodate the Oregon Corrections Intake Center (OCIC) - adding 300 beds, administrative space, and new medical and booking facilities.
||The OCIC moves to a new location, and the Clackamas County Jail absorbs the vacated space. Thirty beds are converted to an in-house laundry service - increasing the total number of jail beds to 434.
