Redmond history:

In 1904, Frank and Josephine Redmond moved from Wasco to a site next to the offered courses of the main canal and a railroad line. In 1906, the canal filled with water and central Oregon Irrigation officials platted the town site called Redmond.

In 1910, the population of Redmond had grown to 216 and the city was incorporated. Redmond grew and many new businesses started up. Some of the businesses included a volunteer fire dept., library, small hospital, bank, laundry and lumber yard. It was a good year for Redmond.

The anticipation of the railroad in 1911 provided an economic increase. The intersection of traffic went through the area and created Redmond's nickname, "The Hub of Central Oregon." (Submitted by Lacy Kirkland, High Desert Middle School)
The incorporation date of Redmond: 1910
