Significance: The Dorris Ranch, an early 20th-century agricultural site in the Willamette Valley, is situated at the confluence of the coast and middle forks of the Willamette River in Lane County. George Dorris purchased the property in 1892 and developed the ranch into the first commercial filbert orchard in the United States. Nationally significant, the 250-acre ranch was started by using new, innovative farming methods and the orchards continue in successful production yet today.
