RESOURCES and HISTORY
of UMATILLA COUNTY
A SFRIF OF SKETCHES OF THE TOWNS AND PEO
PLE MUR COUNTY BY STAFF CORRESPONDENT
Weston. Ore., Nov. 18. Weston has
recently come Into greater ptomlncnce
by reason of tin1 fact that enterpris
ing citizens have been advertising her
abroad It has given out the Impres
sion that she is being boomed, but this
is a mistake. Weston, does not need
any booming. She has the location,
tho surroundings, the resources and
the enterprising citizens to make her
cne of the coming towns of the Inland
Spirit of Progress.
The place at present beais the ap
pearance of a boom town or the ter
minal of a new railroad or a new min
ing town in a place where a rich
strike has been made. The citizens
are all full of life: building anil public
Impiovements are going o tint every
nolnt and the atmosphere is tilled with
n snlrlt of prosperity that cannot be
concealed. A new fountain has just
been placed in tho main street that
iiniirw fort b n snrav of clear, rold
water day and night that gives the
place the appearance of n modern
, Early History.
Tho town was laid out In 18(i'.l by
T. T. Lleuallen. who was the lirst
iwstmaster. In those days It was a
eood trading point. The people along
the Wild Horse, and over a wide
scope of country, came here lor their
mall and did their trailing here. Many
stories of tho early days are still told
by the old-timers and Weston from
the beginning as at present day was
full of lite and confident of the tuture.
The town was first incorporated by
an act of the legislature In 187S. T.
J. Lucy was first mayor. Dan P.
Wright was recorder. Harney Prliio,
town marshal and -L. S. Wood, lirst
Destoyed by Fire.
The entile town was destroyed by
tire In 1S8.1 save one building which,
still stands and Is now occupied by
the Fair store. The town soon began
to rebuild and has continued In a gen
eral substantial growth until the re
cent building spirit which has struck
it and brought it Into notice through
out Hie immediate country. A num
ber of new resident buildings have
just been completed and a number
of others are under construction.
Soveral new business blocks are also
The second act of the legislature
incorporating and enlarging the rights
of the municipality was passed lu
1893. Following are the present town
officials: J. A. Host, mayor; M. Hry
son, M. A. Raker. J. C. Turner. C. H.
Taylor, Frank Saling, P. T. Harbour,
counellmon; L. S. Wood, recorder; J.
R. Kllgore, treasurer and I) F. Lav
In Good Condition.
The town Is in good ftnaneial con
dition. It owns its own water sys
tem anil fire depattment anil has a
good city hall anil jail and owns the
grounds upon which they are situated.
Tho water works are especially ef
licient. The reservoir is fed by a
large group of springs owned by the
town and the elevation of the reser
voir Is such that water can be thrown
through the ordinary fire hose a dis
tance of 90 feet In the air, many feet
above the highest building or church
steeple ,n the town. In connection
with tho department is also a volun
teer huok and ladder company and
this and the hose company are kept
so thoroughly organized that the peo
ple of Weston do not foar another de
struction by fire. ,
The schools of Weston are her spe
cial features. The Eastern Oregon
Normal School has long had a repu
tation for its thoioughness, and now
under tho management of Professor
Martlndalc the equipment Is said to
have about reached perfection.
