State of Oregon - Dalles, Wasco County

Dalles City, (The Dalles) Wasco County, PO and County seat, is on the south bank of the Columbia, 165 miles northeast of Salem, and 115 east-northeast of Portland, and is one of the most important towns of the State. Here the river enters the Cascade Range of mountains, falling over a series of rapids, which interrupt the navigation, and render a portage of fifteen miles necessary. For this purpose a railroad has been constructed from the foot of The Dalles, or rapids, to the head at Celilo, over which the large amount of merchandise carried on the upper Columbia is transported. Dalles City, or as usually called The Dalles, is an old established place, being a well-known point when the State was occupied only by Indians and the hunters of the Fur Companies. It is now a well-built city of numerous brick and stone business blocks, churches and schools. The building of a Branch Mint was undertaken several years ago, but the cessation of appropriations by Congress gives but slight hope for its completion. The falls in the river afford an unlimited water-power, but the manufactories are confined to a woolen mill, flour mill, foundry, and machine shop. Several important roads radiate from The Dalles, making it the entreport of eastern Oregon and Idaho. The travel is large and the freight and forwarding business is extensive. The hotels are prominent, and the churches and public buildings are fine and substantial structures. The private residences, .surrounded as they usually are by pleasant flower gardens, give a home like air of comfort and contentment to this city of the wild mountain gorge. One newspaper, the Mountaineer, is published weekly.
