A Tale of Two Canbys

The OTHER Canby, 1952

When searching online for information on the City of Canby, make sure you specify which one! While Canby, Minnesota is considered “The Other Canby” by many of us in Oregon, both towns have been in existence for well over 100 years, and they share some additional characteristics:

Both communities are named after Edward Canby, a 19th-century U.S. Army General. Both also host their county’s annual fair.
