History

The name of the city is taken from the Tualatin River, which flows along most of the city's northern boundary. According to Oregon Geographic Names, a post office with the spelling "Tualitin" was established November 5, 1869, and the spelling changed to "Tualatin" in 1915.

In the 1850s, the settlement was first called Galbreath after its founder Samuel Galbreath. In 1853, Galbreath built the first bridge over the Tualatin river, and the town became known as Bridgeport. In the 1880s, John Sweek platted a town around the new railroad depot, and named the town Tualatin. It was incorporated as the City of Tualatin in 1913.

In 1962, a fossilized mastodon was excavated in what is now the Fred Meyer parking lot.

Tualatin is home to a majority of Bridgeport Village ("Bridgeport"), an upscale shopping area that opened in early 2005. (The northern part of Bridgeport Village is in Tigard.) Built at the site of a former quarry, Bridgeport was designed to be reminiscent of an open-air European-style shopping experience. It features an 18-screen movie theater, several national and regional chain restaurants, and many chain retail stores.

There are many factories on the south side of town, including a large Novellus Systems plant that makes electrochemical deposition tools for manufacturing semiconductors.  Knife manufacturers Kershaw Knives and CRKT are located in Tualatin.

From the 1960s through the 1980s, Tualatin was the home of Sunn Musical Equipment Company, a manufacturer of musical and sound reinforcement equipment.

Tualatin is sometimes used as a filming location for Hollywood movies, including Thumbsucker, which was filmed at Tualatin High School. Management, starring Jennifer Aniston, is scheduled to be filmed in some parts of Tualatin.
