Shaw, Oregon facts for kids
Shaw was a station in the Waldo Hills between Macleay and Aumsville on the Oregonian Railway (later the Southern Pacific Railroad and today the Willamette Valley Railway). In 1881 the station was named "Waldo Hills" but the name was changed to "Shaw" in 1891 to match the post office.
In 1915 Shaw had two grain mills, which no longer exist. As of 2005, Shaw had 18 dwellings, a machine shop, a general store building, a warehouse and a church.
The Shaw area was settled by pioneer Daniel Waldo in the 1840s.
