About Wasco, Oregon
Three exits from Highway 97 direct travelers into Wasco from the Journey Through Time Scenic Byway. Wasco's amenities include the historic Columbia Southern Railway Depot and historic caboose, City Park, Wasco City Library, Wasco Church of Christ, Wasco United Methodist Church, and St. Mary's Catholic Church. Light industrial and business sites are available. Developing wind farms east of Wasco are seen from the ridge between Wasco and Moro or from county roads east of town.
Wasco, population about 380, is located close to the route of the Oregon Trail just north of town. It is named for Sherman County's parent county, Wasco. The first post office in the area was Spanish Hollow, established in 1870 by Jesse Eaton, postmaster. The name was changed to Wasco in 1882, and the town incorporated in 1898.
