The first settlers on the peninsula floated down the Alsea River in the late 1870s and named Waldport. The name stems from the German word “wald” for forest and “port” for the location. In October of 1879, David and Orlena Ruble laid out the City of Waldport, using the nighttime stars as their survey guide. The city was chartered in 1890 and incorporated in 1911. The town site is an old Indian burial ground. A point south of town bears the name of Chief Yaquina John, one of the last of the Alsi tribe members. (2015, December 13).
