Originally named Prairie City, Harrisburg was incorporated in 1866 and renamed after Harrisburg, PA. Generally the upper-most point of navigation during the steamboat era.
Harrisburg is situated along Highway 99 on the east banks of the Willamette River. The great flood of 1861, which wiped out many river cities along the Willamette River, had a very different effect on Harrisburg. The river changed its course and came right to Harrisburg, where it has remained ever since.
The two main industries supporting Harrisburg's economy are manufacturing and agriculture. Local attractions include: Heritage Park and Museum, 4th of July celbration and the H.A.R.T. Family Resource Center.
There is also a Harrisburg, Illinois.
