New Era is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States.
Its post office opened in 1876 and closed in 1940.

The New Era Spiritual Society, a religious group settled on a hill above Parrott
Creek flowing into the Willamette River above the falls, was the source of the name
for the settlement beginning to form a short distance away. As the town began to
grow, so did the name New Era as an appropriate name for the town. The rich soil
was ideal for farming and potato was the crop of choice. Shipments were made by
wagon to Oregon City, transferred to boats below the falls and on to Portland. After
a system of locks was built, boats could put in at New Era and after the arrival of
the railroad, the produce was shipped by train.
