History & History Related Items

Lakeview history:

Lakeview was chartered in 1889. The town's motto, "The Tallest Town in Oregon", got its name because it is located at the highest elevation of any town in Oregon. In 1900, with a population of 761, a fire swept the town wiping out 75 businesses. Lakeview was rebuilt by 1901. In 1922, Lakeview, like everywhere in the west, saw a slow down in the lumber business. By now motor vehicles were becoming more common and telephones had been in existence for nearly 10 years. Fire danger was extremely high because of drought and an abundance of electrical storms.

Lake County has a unique geological history. An assortment of interesting features can be found along Oregon Highway 31, which follows the historic route of an exploratory expedition led by John Fremont. Among the many sites are the largest exposed fault in North America and one of several remnants of prehistoric lakes. (Submitted by Jeana Arter, High Desert Middle School)
