Carlton, Oregon is a small city in Yamhill County. It was likely named for Wilson Carl, an early settler who in 1872 was chosen by residents to sell the idea of putting a stop in or near what is now Carlton. He was successful at getting a flag stop, which was eventually changed to a regular stop. It was incorporated in 1899.
