Named by the Chinook Indians who first resided there, Scappoose is a city in Columbia County, Oregon, named for a nearby stream, which drains the southern part of the county. The name "Scappoose" is said to mean "gravelly plain." Its nearby cities include Sauvie Island, Warren, St. Helens, North Plains and Deer Island.
Scappoose has a nature trail that leads from the city all the way up into its hills. If you hike far enough, you are more than likely to come across a hidden temple or meditation area with statues and art that people have made from the nature around them. The hills also include places like “View Point” where you can see all of Columbia County and get a beautiful view of the stars at night.
Scappoose used to be known for its “Peace Candle of the World”, which is fifty feet tall and eighteen feet in diameter. It was built in 1971 outside what was then the Brock Candles Inc. factory, which burned down in 1990. The land was formerly a dairy farm and factory owner, Darrel Brock, created the candle by covering a silo with 45,000 pounds of red candle wax to advertise the factory.
The candle was originally built with an actual wick. On May 9, 1971, the town's mayor and Oregon Governor Tom McCall lit the candle with a specially-made 60-foot-long match. Due to difficulties in keeping the candle lit during rainfall, the wick was replaced with a natural gas line up the center of the candle to create a real flame at the top. However, due to environmental concerns and high gas bills, the flame was eventually replaced with an electric neon light flame structure.
For a period, The Peace Candle of the World was held the Guinness World Record for world's largest candle. The candle is meant to serve as a symbol for the desire for world peace. During the Christmas season the Scappoose Peace Candle is strewn with strands of Christmas lights.
