History & History Related Items

Long Creek history: Long Creek received its name when its post office was established in 1883. The first postmaster, J.M. Shields, gave Long Creek its name because it was thought at that time that it was the longest creek in the country.

Due to the Indian wars of 1878, a fort was built east of Long Creek. The entire population of 100 men, women and children gathered there eight days after its construction to defend themselves should the indians attack. When the Indians passed the fort on their way to Umatilla County, they went on by, thinking they were outnumbered.

On June 3, 1894, a cyclone - the first and last ever reported in this section of the country, struck squarely in the center of town, killing one family and leaving a path of destruction over Long Creek Mountain.
