Sisters history:

Hudson Bay trappers crossed over this land. Kit Carson also crossed over the Sisters territory in 1843. During this time pioneers from the west discovered a route through the Sisters country while on their way to the gold mines of eastern Oregon and Idaho. A few years later in 1875, settlers came and started to build a post office and a few houses for the settlers to live in. The settlers moved to the area to farm and to raise sheep. They needed a name for the little town so in 1901 they named it Sisters because from where the town was located, you could see the Three Sister's Mountains. Since that time, Sisters has served as a supply stop for travelers, sheepmen and others and a shopping location for local residents.

Now, in 1996, Sisters is a good place to live or visit. In its "Old West" atmosphere there is good food and great community activities, such as: really neat quilt shows, arts and craft shows, and big time rodeos. (Submitted by Erik Horgen, High Desert Middle School)
