Nestled in the green, fertile Willamette Valley, Corvallis enjoys mild temperatures and easy access to the Pacific Ocean, the Cascade Mountains, the high desert of Eastern Oregon and the big city amenities of Portland and Eugene. Settled in 1845, Corvallis was first named Marysville, after early settler Mary Lloyd. In 1847, the residents of Marysville petitioned to form Benton County, named for Thomas Hart Benton, an advocate of the development of the Oregon Territory. In 1853, the city was renamed Corvallis, meaning "Heart of the Valley."
