Information provided by U.S. Forest Service
According to the Native American Multnomah tribe, Multnomah Falls was created to win the heart of a young princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. Now, Multnomah Falls is the most visited natural recreation site in the Pacific Northwest with more than 2 million stopping by each year to take in the views.
The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area encompasses 292,500 acres, running from the mouth of the Sandy River to the mouth of the Deschutes and spanning southern Washington and northern Oregon. The Gorge is unique in its natural and cultural history, as well as its designation as a National Scenic Area.
Benson Bridge and Multnomah Falls Lodge, are features that help make this waterfall special. In 1914, Simon Benson, a prominent businessman and owner of the falls at that time, erected the bridge which was crafted by Italian stone masons. Benson gave the 300 acre site to the City of Portland. In 1943, final ownership of the site and lodge was transferred to the Forest Service.
The Multnomah Falls Lodge was built in 1925 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Every type of rock found in the Columbia River Gorge is represented in the lodge structure.
