Umatilla County was created out of a portion of Wasco County
on September 27, 1862. The County contains 3,231 square miles
and is bordered by the Columbia River on the north, Morrow
County on the west, Grant County on the south, and Union and
Wallowa Counties on the east.
Originally, Marshall Station was designated as the temporary
county seat, followed by Umatilla City in 1865. Today, Pendleton
acts as the county seat, due to an 1868 vote leading to its
election after a population shift to the area.
Though Lewis and Clark and Oregon Trail pioneers passed
through Umatilla County, it didn’t truly expand until the
arrival of the railroad in 1881, which opened the area for the
development of dryland wheat farming. The County’s economy has a
strong agricultural base, with fruit, grain, timber, cattle and
sheep being important products.
The Pilot Rock School District offers classes starting at
Kindergarten and running through high school (K-12).
