Hood River, Jefferson, Sherman, Morrow, Wasco and Wheeler Counties


Sherman County, 97065

Wasco is a typical grain based agricultural area, but I understand now that the wind farms have moved in. That should really help the economic base of the area. This town has a history of fires burning the downtown area. As a consequence many of the commercial buildings are less than 100 years old. Wasco has the distinction of not being in Wasco county as one might think. Its a little like New York City being in Tennessee. Perhaps if they had been named the Sherman county seat in 1898 they could have changed the name to Sherman. They might still try that just to liven things up.
