Overview of Umatilla County, Oregon

Umatilla County is a county located in the state of Oregon. The county was named for the Umatilla River, the Native American name for the river, which was first recorded as Youmalolam in the journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. As of 2000, the population is 70,548. The county seat is located at Pendleton.

Economy

The gold rush of 1862 brought miners and stock raisers to the mountains and grasslands of Umatilla County. Another stimulus was the arrival of the railroad in 1881, opening the region to the development of dry land wheat farming. Water for irrigation has been key to economic diversification and growth, most recently in the Hermiston area, where lush watermelons and other products are grown. The annual Pendleton Round-Up rodeo held in Pendleton is an important tourist attraction.

History

Umatilla County was created on September 27, 1862, out of a portion of Wasco County. Adjustments were made to the county’s boundaries following the creation of Grant, Morrow, Union, and Wallowa Counties. This legislative act also designated Marshall Station as the temporary county seat. An 1865 election selected Umatilla City, now known as Umatilla, as the county seat. With the development of wheat farming, population shifted to the north and east parts of the county, and a subsequent election in 1868 moved the county seat again to Pendleton.

The Umatilla Indian Reservation was established by the Treaty of Walla Walla in 1855. The Umatillas, Walla Wallas, and Cayuse tribes were resettled there, and is located immediately southeast of Pendleton.

EZ Wireless of Hermiston officially opened on February 4, 2004, one of the largest known Wi-Fi wide area networks in the United States, covering parts of Umatilla County, Morrow County and Benton County, Washington. Although created to facilitate communications among local police, firemen and EMT workers who immediately response to possible accidents or terrorist attacks on the Umatilla Chemical Depot, EZ Wireless expects to make its high speed data lines available to commercial use soon. The U.S. Army currently mantains a national arsenal of nerve gas at the Umatilla Chemical Depot.
