County Road 101

RIBBON RIDGE ROAD - Military road predating statehood - 60 feet wide - Lies six miles northwest of Newberg. Ribbon Ridge was given its name by Colby Carter in 1865. Colby was an area settler from Missouri. This ridge twists like a ribbon along the southwest part of the Chehalem Mountains; hence, how the road was named!

The notes of the July 15, 1853 GLO survey of the Robert Kinney DLC #38 begins at a "Stone in Road from Lafayette to Portland and S.E. corner, + 23.08 (chains) from S.W. corner of Sec 4 + Bearing S.64°W." Given the date of this confirmation of the age of this road, which pre-existed statehood by nearly 6 years, it is held by the county to be 60 ft. wide, based on territorial road laws in effect at the time.
