Estacada is a city located in Clackamas County, Oregon, roughly 30 miles southeast of Portland. The origin of the city's name is disputed. One explanation is that the city's name is a corruption of the name of a local resident, Esther Katie. There is no evidence that she existed. The more prosaic explanation is that someone with knowledge of the Llano Estacado region of modern-day Texas threw the name in a hat and it won, but somehow the final o became an a. Whatever the truth, it is doubtless the only place in United States (possibly Planet Earth) bearing the name Estacada. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 2,371.
