Explore the History of Sisters Country

Tucked into the eastern slopes of the Oregon Cascade Mountains, the area around Sisters, Oregon was the Wild West in many people’s eyes as recently as the 1950s.

Native Americans, primarily Northern Paiute, used the land for seasonal hunting and gathering, but never for a permanent settlement. The first settlers came in the 1880s. The timber industry florished in the early 1900s. By 2000 its relaxed lifestyle and tourism sparked the area's growth.
