The Row River is a river, approximately 20 miles (32 km) long, in Lane County, Oregon, United States. It rises in the Cascade Range and flows into the Coast Fork Willamette River near Cottage Grove. The stream was originally known as the “East Fork Coast Fork”, but was later renamed after a dispute between neighbors and brothers-in-law George Clark and Joseph Southwell over “trespassing” livestock. Clark was killed as a result of the row. The name rhymes with “cow” rather than with “slow”. A post office named Row River operated from 1911 to 1914 a little north of the present site of Dorena at 43.740123°N 122.880347°W / 43.740123; -122.880347.
