Carver is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States, which as of 2004, is part of the city of Damascus, Oregon. Before 2004, when the city of Damascus incorporated, Carver was an independent, unincorporated community. Carver is still recognized as a community within the greater city of Damascus.

The center of Carver is located along the Clackamas River, three miles southwest of the center of Damascus, and five miles east of Clackamas. The community is located along Oregon Route 224.

Points of interest

  • Carver Bridge: The Clackamas River at Carver was originally crossed using a slack-line ferry orperated by Horace Baker. Subsequently a wooden covered bridge spanned the river and is reported to have been the longest covered bridge in the State. The modern steel truss bridge replaced the wooden bridge, and is itself now slated for replacement in 2009. Located alongside the wooden bridge was a large train trestle of the C & E Railway. That line extended out past Viola and served several sawmills and communities.
  • Baker's Cabin; Located on the south side of the Clackamas River, across from Carver. Managed by the Baker Cabin Historic Society (www.bakercabin.org) the original log cabin is restored and the site is maintained for historic interest. Horace Baker and Jane Hattan settled on the site after coming overland via the Oregon Trail, and Barlow Trail in 1846.

Also on the historic site is the restored German Methodist Church, moved to this site in 1967 from Logan (roughly 6 miles east). The Pioneer Church, as it is now known, is used as a community meeting place and is rented for weddings and memorial events. For more information on the history, please visit the website.

  • Carver Park: The memorable meadow scene for the movie Twilight (2008 film) was filmed in Carver Park.[citation needed]
