History

Perrydale was formed from the Townsend, Kinsey, and Butler donation land claims; the Townsend claim was deeded to Narcis Provo, who then deeded it to William Perry, after whom the community was named by John McGrew, who had bought Perry's claim and platted the town of Perrydale. Beginning in 1881, the town was the site of a station on the Airlie branch of the Oregonian Railway Company. Rail service to Perrydale ended in 1985.

The Perrydale post office ran from 1870 until 1971. Today, Perrydale has an Amity, Oregon mailing address.

Near Perrydale are the Perrydale Hills, a wine-growing location expected to become an American Viticultural Area.
