Sisters, Oregon

 

Even before settlers came to the Sisters area, it was a crossroads for Native American travelers from the Willamette Valley to the west, the Columbia River to the north, and the high desert country to the east and south. Early day Hudson Bay trappers may have visited this area as early as 1810. John C. Fremont, guided by Kit Carson, passed through this country in 1843.

Because of the barrier of the Cascade Mountains, most of Central Oregon was bypassed to the north by the first pioneers following the Oregon Trail during the 1840s. In 1859, Willamette Valley residents discovered a route east through the Santiam Pass, the first of several routes that later became wagon roads through the Sisters country to the gold mines of eastern Oregon and Idaho.
 

In 1901, a plat was filed for a town to be called Sisters and the community began to grow. The town was named for the Three Sisters mountains. Some say the mountains were originally called Faith, Hope, and Charity by early pioneers.

Sisters has continued to build and expand its commercial area to one of the finest in the country. Sisters is now a popular destination for visitors, a shopping center for the growing number of people who have moved to the area, and an attractive place for many professionals and businesses to make their headquarters.
