Stafford is an unincorporated community, classified as a hamlet, of approximately 2,200 residents in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. The community consists of approximately 3,900 acres (16 km2), located in a rough triangle south of Lake Oswego, east of Tualatin, and west of West Linn. Students in the area attend the schools of the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.

History

Stafford was named by Portland pioneer, after his hometown of Stafford, Ohio, in the 1860s.[1] The Stafford School opened in the community in 1892, and the following year the Eastside Electric Railway owned by Steel reached the area.[1] In 1895, the Wanker family moves to the area and buys land where they build a store and tavern, an area later to become Wankers Corner.[1]

Parts of the area were proposed to be added to the Portland area's urban growth boundary in 1995.[1] Eventually 830 acres (3.4 km2) were added, but later removed after a court fight that ended in 2001 at the Oregon Court of Appeals.[1] In November, 2006, the residents of Stafford voted 344-30 to form a hamlet, the second Oregon community to do so (after Beavercreek).[2]
