History

Oroville was first settled by caucasian settlers in the late 1850s and known as 'rag town'. The settlement was named Oro, after the Spanish word for gold, in 1892 after the surrounding gold mines, and in an attempt to attract prospectors and merchants. The Post Office objected to the name "Oro," because there was already a town named "Oso" in Washington, so the name was changed to Oroville, in 1909. Oroville started to become a tourist location in the mid 2000's with large condo developments being placed, the town had an economy peak in 2005-2007 but is now suffering due to the recession.
