State of Oregon - La Grande, Union County

La Grande, Union County, PO, incorporated city, and County seat, 85 miles south east of Umatilla, and 350 east of Salem, is on the stage and overland road from the navigable waters of the Columbia at Umatilla, to the mining districts of Eastern Oregon, Idaho and to the Pacific Railroad in the Valley of Salt Lake. The city is on Grande Ronde River, in the center of the valley of that name, and is surrounded by a large area of some of the best agricultural land of the world. The valley has an elevation of about 2,500 feet, is a vast basin of from twenty to thirty miles in diameter, surrounded by high hills or spurs of the Blue Mountains, and is fertile and healthy. Union, Forest Grove, Warm Springs, and Orodell, are flourishing towns of the valley. La Grande is well built, maintains an academy and other schools, to which the Blue Mountain University, in course of construction, will soon be added, and several churches, flouring mill, and other institutions pertaining to a prosperous city. It is the seat of a United States Land Office, and also a State Land Office, both of which do a large business. One newspaper, the Mountain Sentinel, is published weekly.
