The extreme cold that comes with the Happy Valley winter season can cause major water damage. The homes in Happy Valley that are left vacant during this season are at the greatest risk. When leaving your home for long periods of time, be sure to keep the heater on and have someone check up on it from time to time. Water pipes that are most prone to freeze and break are ones that lack the proper insulation. These frozen pipe breaks can be unnoticeable because they usually originate in the basements where insulation is minimum.

Happy Valley was originally called Christilla Valley, named after the first residents, Christian and Matilda Deardorff. They arrived in 1851 and claimed 640 acres on the floor of the valley.
In 1902, wildfires destroyed farmland in many parts of Clackamas County. It also took the efforts of 20 men to protect the schoolhouse from being destroyed. In 1904, a severe fire approaching from Gresham posed serious danger to Deardorff Valley farmhouses and caused much uneasiness among the residents. An Oregonian article covering the fires quoted a farmer living in the valley who stated that “with a fair wind there will be little chance of saving the farmhouses” as the area is “covered with a mass of brush and dry snags and logs, which would feed a fire and carry it forward at a great rate.” Following this event in 1904, another fire broke out in November of that year this time by the recklessness of a man which consumed his neighbor’s fence. To make things even more difficult for valley farmers, a pack of coyotes had invaded the area and were killing poultry and sheep. In the autumn of 1904, a hunt had to be formed of men with guns and hounds to kill the coyotes. But, according to an Oregonian article covering the hunt, the coyotes “were left unhurt” and were sent “skirmishing to the hills.” With these dispiriting events occurring in the valley, realtors might have needed a clever strategy to attract future land buyers. And, coincidentally, the name “Happy Valley” made its earliest recorded appearance in two real estate ads in 1909.
The city was officially incorporated in 1965 and remained a small community until the late 1990s, when it was one of the fastest-growing cities in Oregon.
