Abstract: Northwest Natural Gas Company is a public utility doing business in 99 communities in the state of Oregon and Washington with its corporate headquarters located in Portland, Oregon. The companys history is steeped in the traditions of the Pacific Northwest, having been franchised by the then governor, George L. Curry, of the Territory of Oregon. In 1859 Portland occupied an area of ,8 square miles and had a population of 2,874. It was nicknamed Stump Town because it consisted primarily of mud shanties surrounded by stumps. Oregon was still a territory when the company franchise was granted and its people were traveling west along the Oregon Trail in covered wagons.
