ometimes it pays to be the new kid on the block. Youthful Redmond, only 100 years old in 2010, was the last of Central Oregon’s major communities to incorporate. After more than a decade of meteoric growth, we’ve settled into a healthy gradual upward trend in population increases and are enjoying being the hub city of the region. Redmond is the geographic heart of Central Oregon, nearly equidistant from the Ochoco Mountains and Prineville Reservoir, prime fly-fishing spots

on the Metolius River, the dramatic lava fields south of Bend, and the hot springs at the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. Early settlers in Redmond were attracted by the area’s climate and potential; the coming of irrigation

canals and the railroad caused a flood of newcomers soon after the turn of the 20th century. We began as an agricultural community, centered around farming, ranching and natural resource industries such as lumber mills. We’ve grown to include a first-class airport and expo center, light industrial and manufacturing facilities and technology-based businesses. Redmond is a community that is constantly reinventing itself, striving to remain true to its roots while being open to change and reinvigoration.

Only a few short decades ago, Redmond held no more than 3,000 people. Today, even with 10 times that many residents, it still maintains a small-town appeal.

Local History
A
s the calendar begins the second decade of the 21st century, Redmond and surrounding areas are looking back to the beginning of the 20th century, when settlement began in earnest.

In 1904, North Dakota schoolteachers Frank and Josephine Redmond and their daughter, Lucile, moved to Central Oregon (after a stop in Wasco) and, at the suggestion of Deschutes Irrigation and Power Company officials, pitched their tent next to the right of way for the company’s under-construction

irrigation canal and near a projected rail line, on land just northeast of today’s downtown. A couple of years later, water began flowing through the canal, a townsite was platted and Col. W.A. Belcher began selling real estate from what is now the heart of downtown — Southwest Sixth Street and Evergreen Avenue. By July 6, 1910, the little community boasted 216 residents and became an incorporated city. One hundred years later, the city of more than 25,000 residents is celebrating its centennial. The much-anticipated railroad

came through town in 1911, assuring the town’s survival. The High Desert community grew in fits and starts over the decades. Over the years, Redmond has been a potato production and shipping center, a hub for turkey raising and home to several wood-product mills. Today, resorts in the area draw tourists and an abundance of industrial land has lured a variety of businesses, big and small. Foresight by early residents made Redmond home to Central Oregon’s regional airport and the Deschutes County Fair (and today’s modern exposition center).

Local History
Continued from Page 3

Terrebonne, five miles north of Redmond, began its existence as Hillman — a combination of the names of James Hill and E.H. Harriman, two railroad magnates who raced to lay track into Central Oregon. But in early 1911, about the time the tracks arrived, a prominent real estate developer in the area who was named Hillman brought disgrace to the name so, after a brief stint as Smith Rock, townsfolk changed the name to Terrebonne, French for “good earth.” For about 15 years, Terrebonne had a thriving commercial district (including five saloons in 1914) but in the mid-1920s, as improved roads and better vehicles made travel easier, business migrated to Redmond. In recent years, however, Terrebonne has seen a resurgence and is home to restaurants, banks, a supermarket and hardware store.

Terrebonne

Terrebonne began its existence as Hillman — a combination of the names of James Hill and E.H. Harriman, two railroad magnates who raced to lay track into Central Oregon. Crooked River Ranch

has evolved into a permanent community of about 5,000 residents. In addition to the nearly 10,000 one- to five-acre lots, the ranch has a golf course and small commercial district. The original ranch site was purchased by a Texas oilman named Gates in 1910, and his former main ranch house now hosts the Crooked River Ranch senior center. In 2009, Powell Butte, an unincorporated agricultural community halfway between Redmond and Prineville, marked the 100th anniversary of the establishment its post office in 1909. In 1907, Powell Butte’s handful of residents had built a school for the area’s seven schoolchildren. Early residents raised sheep for wool. When water reached the area in 1908, agriculture, particularly potatoes, boomed. While the potato no longer is king, Powell Butte continues to lure residents who enjoy rural life.
The entertainment was downhome and the decor decidedly spudcentered during Redmond’s annual Potato Festival. Potatoes also were big in Powell Butte after water reached the area in 1908.

Crooked River Ranch, about seven miles west of Terrebonne, sprung up as a community nearly 40 years ago. Bill McPherson purchased the former working cattle ranch in 1971 to develop a recreational home site community. Since then, the ranch

Buckaroo Breakfast

O

nce you join the Buckaroo Breakfast crew, its volunteers like to joke, you’re in it for life. It may seem to many that Redmond’s cowboy-style breakfast feed has been around forever, but in fact it was begun in 1944, as a unique community fundraiser: All monies are put back into the event, to maintain equipment and buy materials for the next year. In fact, the Buckaroo Breakfast has no function other than to bring people together. Every year, a loosely organized band of volunteers, headed by their Top Hand, begins planning a breakfast to feed upwards of 2,000 people on the last morning of the county fair. More than 100 volunteer crew members, including entire families and expatriates who return to Redmond just for the

occasion, show up on the day of the event to prepare the Westernthemed breakfast of flapjacks, pan bread, eggs and meat — all cooked over an open flame. A few things have changed over the years — sausage and bacon

replaced steaks, and during the war years coffee drinkers had to bring their own sugar due to rationing — but for legions of Redmondites, the Buckaroo Breakfast is their connection to home.

Redmond Flag Committee
t was the sight of a long stretch of American flags on Redmond streets, a welcome-home event for some Desert Storm soldiers in 1991, that inspired a group of citizens to form the Redmond Flag Committee. Within eight years, the group had “sold” more than 700 flags: each four-by-six flag is sponsored by an individual or organization and embroidered with a name, usually that of a veteran. Today, the committee, with assistance from a variety of civic groups, puts up more than 1,000 flags on seven major display days (sometimes

more often, such as when a fallen soldier is brought home). Hauling that many wooden poles out of a trailer, unfurling 24 square feet of red, white and blue polyester and finding an open hole

in the concrete sidewalk at 6 a.m. is not an easy task, nor is showing up 12 hours later to do the same thing in reverse. The group is always looking for new members. It can take as little as an hour to blanket the city in flags if a nice-size group shows up, but it can take hours if there are just a few volunteers. In addition to flag display days, the committee holds occasional work days for flag maintenance and clearing out display holes. To find out more, visit the Redmond Flag Committee website, www.flagcityusa.us/index.htm.

Downtown
V
isitors to Redmond’s downtown core in years past might not recognize it, so numerous have the changes been over the past several years. Roadbed reconstruction and sidewalk improvements on Fifth and Sixth streets, building facade upgrades, improved signage and niceties such as historic light poles, banners and flowers have added an ambiance to the city’s downtown never seen before. A highway reroute for through traffic has enabled Fifth and Sixth streets to become our main streets once more. Eye-catching gateways have been placed at the north, west, and south of the city center, as well as in the core, where in 2009 a decorative arch was erected on Sixth Street between Deschutes and Evergreen avenues, and instantly became an iconic image for the city. Centennial Park, featuring an interactive water feature, opened across from city hall just in time for the city’s centennial celebration. In addition to the fountain, the park has green spaces, a shade pavilion, a walk-up cafe and a fireplace. Several of Redmond’s most significant historical buildings downtown have undergone major renovations in recent years, including the New Redmond Hotel, the First National Bank, the Atkinson building, and the former Davidson Meat Market. Even more are taking advantage of a grant program to fix up their facades. Downtown Redmond is still fairly diverse, as traditional city center shopping districts were and continue to be. City hall, the visitor’s center and police station, as well as our branch library, call downtown home. Topping off the civic selections are restaurants of every type, bookstores, barbershops and hair salons, banks, art galleries, a music store, a hardware and sporting goods store, a nightclub — and the list goes on. Efforts continue to recruit and support downtown businesses, to ensure residents and visitors have a complement to our big-box shopping choices in other sections of town.
Redmond’s historic blocks downtown have been refurbished recently, with features including new roadways and sidewalks, outdoor tables and upgraded store facades.

Outdoor Recreation
edmond sits in a mother lode of recreational possibilities. There are riches of recreation in all directions and recreation is, in many senses, Central Oregon’s gold. That translates into miles and miles of sun and fun. The possibilities are almost limitless, with the Ochoco Mountains to the east, the Cascades to the west, the lower Deschutes River, Lake Billy Chinook and Smith Rock State Park to the north. To the south lie the Newberry Volcanic National Monument, the Cascade High Lakes and the upper Deschutes. What’s in between? How about dozens of golf courses, Cline Buttes recreation area, more of the Deschutes River and a number of equestrian venues? Redmond is the home of a very busy chapter of the Oregon Hunters

R

Association (www.redmondoha .com) that has been active in wildlife habitat enhancement. They continue working on a multi-year project to enhance wildlife habitat on Murderer’s Creek off the South Fork of the John Day River. Fly fishers will enjoy the Metolius River west of Sisters and the Crooked River below Prineville Reservoir, as well as the lower Deschutes and such Cascade lakes as Hosmer, renowned for its population of Atlantic salmon. Lake Billy Chinook provides ample space for fishing as well as water skiing and other aquatic sports, as does Prineville Reservoir to the east, which is known for its bass fishing. There are many hiking opportunities in Central Oregon, including easy walks along the Deschutes River or into some of the Cascade lakes, like Todd

Lake near Mount Bachelor. There is also a nice easy trail around Suttle Lake near the Santiam Pass. Plenty of wilderness hiking is also available in the Three Sisters and Mount Jefferson Wilderness areas in the Cascades and the Mill Creek Wilderness east of Prineville in the Ochoco Mountains. Central Oregon is renowned for its skiing and snowboarding and Mt. Bachelor, about 22 miles southwest of Bend, is a top destination ski resort. Hoodoo ski area on the Santiam Pass offers a hill full of fun runs for skiers and snowboarders at a much cheaper rate. Both ski mountains offer groomed Nordic trails and there are a number of areas, most notably the Virginia Meisner area on the road to Mt. Bachelor, that offer miles of trails and a warming hut for the price of a small donation.

A paved four-mile asphalt path runs from the city’s wastewater treatment plant in the north to Quartz Avenue, and at least half of that length has dirt trail as well.

Tips for High Desert gardeners
Plant growth: The elevation in Central Oregon increases as you travel from north to south. Redmond is in the middle, at 3,060 feet. The high elevation means low nighttime

temperatures, slow plant growth and an increased chance of frost year-round. Redmond’s average last frost date is June 1 and its fall frost arrives about Sept. 21. • Use row covers, cold frames and raised beds to extend your growing season. • Mulch around perennials for winter protection. • Add 14 days into the number given for maturation on seed packets. Soil and water: Central Oregon soils tend to be coarse, sandy and lacking in organic matter;

Transportation
oberts Field-Redmond Municipal Airport is Central Oregon’s only commercial airport. Delta, Horizon, United Airlines and United Express offer daily direct flights to Portland, San Francisco, Salt Lake City and Seattle and seasonal direct flights to Denver. Allegiant Air offers direct flights to Las Vegas and Phoenix two days a week. Airport information and airline flight information and reservation numbers are available on the city’s website: log on to www.ci.redmond.or.us, then go to Roberts Field under “Departments.” Redmond has no fixed-route mass transit system; however, the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council, through Cascades East Transit, operates a bus service that includes Dial-A-Ride for seniors and is available to the general public. The bus service provides transportation for riders between their homes and destinations in the Redmond-

amend generously to give plants nutrients. The pH is generally neutral and needs no adjustment. • Water plants every 6-8 weeks in winter to prevent desiccation, if the soil will accept it. • Water plants deeply but infrequently to prevent shallow roots and drying out. Plants: Most of all, say OSU Extension agents, carefully select
Page 42

your plants to ensure adaptability to Central Oregon. • Deer-resistant does not mean deer-proof, and even plants listed as resistant will get nibbled on from time to time. Deer browsing depends upon the available food source for that year, time of year, location, deer species and simple curiosity. The only sure-fire way to keep the deer from nibbling is to put up a

tall enough fence. • Rockchucks, a marmot in the squirrel family, can cause damage in some gardens. Some methods to reduce damage include planting away from buildings, berms and fences (they avoid open areas), short flexible fences (buried at least a foot), ammonia-soaked rags and anything that moves in the wind that may scare them away.

Making Sense of Redmond Addresses
Redmond’s east-west grid streets are alphabetical and the north-south streets are numerical. The dividing line between north and south is Antler Avenue. Streets to the north mostly have vegetative themes: Birch, Cedar, Dogwood, Elm, Fir, Greenwood, Hemlock, Ivy, Jackpine, Kingwood, Larch, Maple, etc. Streets south of Antler are a mix of landmarks, native flora and fauna, rocks and names from history: Black Butte, Cascade, Deschutes, Evergreen, Forest, Glacier, Highland, Indian, Juniper, Kalama, Lava, Metolius, Newberry, Obsidian, Pumice, Quartz, Reindeer, etc. The dividing line between east and west addresses is a line that runs along the east side of downtown from Northwest Canal Boulevard down First Street in the city’s industrial area. male with a harem of two to three adult females, and produce litters of three to five babies between April and June.

Rockchucks, aka Yellow-bellied Marmots
The furry critters lounge on lawns and scurry across streets in the spring and summer and are a bane to gardeners and farmers for their voracious appetite for garden greens and alfalfa. Males range from 6.5 to 11.5 pounds, and 1.6 to 2.3 feet in length, while females are 3.5 to 8.75 pounds, and 1.5 to 2.2 feet long. They have a life expectancy of 13-15 years. They live in underground burrows in rocky areas in social units of one adult

Red Cinders
Red cinders can be seen in cuts in the sides of local hills, spread on winter roads and in a few places still in the asphalt used to pave Central Oregon roads — making them red. The cinders are a legacy of the area’s volcanic origins. Gascharged molten rock sprayed volcanic foam, which hardened into cinder rock, into the air. The cinders fell back into a pile to form a cone, the origin of many of the hills in the area: Forked Horn Butte in Southwest Redmond,

Rattlesnakes
The High Desert is snake country, but a little common sense can go a long way to allay fears. Rattlesnakes don’t seek out people; they are seldom out in the open and when they are, they are usually on the move and more visible. Rattlesnakes mostly hibernate in winter, becoming more active when the weather warms. They are most often found under rocks, under shrubbery and tall grass. They can also swim! Keep aware when in the outdoors; never reach into dark, enclosed places without checking first. If you encounter a rattlesnake, back away as quickly and quietly as possible. And it’s important to note that another common High Desert snake, the gopher snake, is often mistaken for a rattlesnake.

Western juniper berries. The junipers that thrive across Central Oregon flower in the spring and shed pollen in May, bringing misery to allergy sufferers.
Leslie Pugmire Hole/ Spokesman

Western Juniper
The western juniper trees that cover the Central Oregon landscape are members of the cypress family. The gray-green trees grow on approximately 2.8 million acres from north-central through south-central Oregon. A century ago, the trees were few and far between, but aggressive fire suppression in recent decades has allowed the trees to proliferate and create “forests.” When mature, the trees range from 13-33 feet high, with exceptions at both ends, depending on site conditions. Junipers, long-lived and often described as “ruggedly
Page 44

picturesque,” reach ages estimated to be more than 1,000 years old. Old-growth stands in Central Oregon are between 200 and 400 years old. The trees thrive in a semiarid climate (9-14 inches of precipitation) with dry, hot summers and cold winters. They flower in spring and shed pollen in May, bringing misery to many allergy sufferers. Where junipers flourish, you’ll also find big sagebrush, the most common shrub associated with western juniper; gray rabbitbrush, green rabbitbrush, antelope brush, wax current and horsebrush.

Coyotes
Sometimes that “dog” running around is a coyote. Coyotes, members of the dog family, are common sights, especially at rural homes in Central Oregon. Coyotes have thick, dense fur that can make them look larger than their typical 22 to 30 pounds. According to the Audubon Society of Portland, they are adaptable creatures, and will make themselves at home in burrows, under downed trees,

in thick brambles or in culverts. Their primary diet is small rodents, but being opportunistic, they will eat a variety of foods, including birds and insects, fruit and vegetables, human garbage and compost, outdoor pet food — and small, free-roaming pets. The only way to protect small dogs and cats is to keep them indoors, especially at night, in a fenced yard or on a leash. Never feed coyotes or other wild mammals. Cover garbage cans and compost bins. To keep coyotes from your yard, remove unnecessary brush, install motion-sensitive lighting or a coyote-proof fence — at least six feet tall, no openings greater than four inches and flush with the ground. If you see a coyote near your home, show it that it’s not welcome by shouting, making noise and waving your arms. In Oregon it is illegal to relocate coyotes or to hold them in captivity. The only remedy for troublesome animals is euthanasia. To report problem coyotes, contact the Oregon Department of Wildlife, High Desert Region office in Bend, 541388-6363.

A Brief History of the Redmond Spokesman In mid-1910, realizing that the up-and-coming settlement of Redmond was the place to be, H.H. and C.L. Palmer, a married couple whose names are lost to history, called pioneer teamster Joe Buckley and had him load up their printing presses and haul them from Laidlaw (soon to become Tumalo) to Redmond. The first issue of The Spokesman was published Thursday, July 14, 1910. Headlines in the first issue: • New buildings are being put up in all parts of the City of Redmond - Remarkable growth in the past few months • Work at the Redmond new water plant going forward briskly • Home of Redmond Bank of Commerce nearing completion • City council organized (the first ordinance introduced provided for an annual license of $400 for near beer establishments) It was the second newspaper in town, The Hub having started publication a year earlier. Before long, the two merged. A one-year subscription in 1910 was $1.50.

Publication Day of Spokesman
The Redmond Spokesman is published Thursday of each week. The inside pages go to press Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock. The paper will be mailed Wednesday night so as to reach all subscribers the current week. From July 14, 1910 first edition.

Smith Rock
W
hether you are a rock climber or hiker or sightseer, Smith Rock State Park near Terrebonne offers a first-class experience. Smith Rock may draw rock climbers from all over the world, but it has plenty to offer even the most casual hiker. The 600acre park has trails both easy and challenging, a green and shady picnic area, a campground and views that cannot be beat anywhere in the state. Trails follow both sides of the river and cross at a footbridge

If you go

To get to Smith Rock, take Highway 97 to Terrebonne, turn east on Smith Rock Way, left on NE 1st Street at the bottom of the hill and follow it as it turns into NE Wilcox Avenue. Follow the signs and turn left onto NE Crooked River Drive. There is a $5 day use fee year-round.

near a massive rock precipice aptly named Parking Lot Wall. Hikers who walk into the canyon have

three choices after they cross the footbridge — right, left or up. The trail down to the river is a fairly steep dirt and gravel path, but fine for everyone but the least sure-footed. A walking stick helps. At the bottom of the trail is a picturesque footbridge, a water fountain and a restroom. If you want to explore, cross the footbridge and turn — either way. The left turn will take you on a slightly longer trail of about two miles that runs along the river. This trail also takes you past the majority of the climbing routes, so

Hikers, equestrians and anglers are equally attracted to Smith Rock State Park — along with rock climbers, of course.

Smith Rock
be sure to look up occasionally. If you take the right turn at the footbridge, the trail again hugs the river for slightly over a mile, but in a less rocky and wooded manner. This is a good choice for those with mobility challenges or who are just out for an easy hike. The trail passes by an area that is closed to climbing for much of the year because of golden eagle nesting and ends near a path that heads nearly straight up to Burma Road. The Misery Ridge trail also starts its climb just across the footbridge and winds past Parking Lot Wall and Red Wall, and descends on the west side past Monkey Face. After crossing the footbridge, look for the signs directing you to Misery Ridge — and whatever you do, take the sign seriously. This 3.6 mile hike may be short, but its nearly 1,000foot elevation gain is not for the faint of heart. The views from the top are stellar. To the south and west, the entire Cascade Range seems visible, and the Crooked River Valley never looked lovelier. The trail takes you across the top of Smith Rock to the west and your descent begins near eye-level with Monkey Face. At the bottom of the trail, you meet up with the end of the river path, which takes you back to the footbridge. Several trails at the park are open to horses and there are horse fords downstream and upstream from the footbridge. Ambitious hikers, horsemen, bikers and trail runners can ascend Burma Road, which climbs a hillside above the North Unit Canal Tunnel at the east end of the park. The road descends into a valley where a system of roads and trails lead toward the Crooked River.

Leslie Pugmire Hole/Spokesman

Smith Rock is world-renowned for its climbing opportunities, so if you’re hiking in the area, be sure to check out the rock faces.

Smith Rock has plenty to offer even the most casual hiker. The 600-acre park has trails both easy and challenging, a green and shady picnic area, a campground and views that cannot be beat anywhere in the state.

Peter Skene Ogden Scenic Wayside

P

eter Skene Ogden Scenic Wayside is nine miles north of Redmond on Highway 97. This is a must-see stop with stellar photo opportunities. The viewpoint rims a 300-foot-deep canyon cut by the Crooked River, which lies along its bottom. To the west is the fabled 1911 Oregon Trunk Railroad trestle that helped connect Redmond with the world. Adjacent to the wayside is the steel arch 1926 Crooked River Bridge, or High Bridge as locals call it. Before the bridge was built, travelers had to make their way down the steep canyon sides to ford the river. In 2003, a new bridge, named for local military veteran Rex T. Barber, was constructed for vehicular traffic and the High Bridge was made into a footbridge for visitors to the canyon. Ogden was a Canadian fur trapper and mountain man who led explorations throughout Central Oregon in the 1820s. He was a man who really got around: there is a city named for him in Utah, as well as several schools in the U.S. and Canada and a Canadian port.

Peter Skene Ogden Scenic Wayside features three adjacent bridges over a dramatic 300-foot-deep canyon with the Crooked River winding along the bottom, so don’t forget to bring your camera.

Cline Falls Scenic Wayside
line Falls Scenic Wayside is a day use park four miles west of Redmond on Highway 126. It has picnic tables, barbecues, restrooms, horseshoe pits and plenty of green space. The Deschutes River runs along the park, providing quiet spots to wade or deeper swimming holes and simple ‘rapids’ for tubers. Locals in the know head downriver to swimming spots on the north side of the Cline Falls

Bridge, but beware — they are close to the falls, which have claimed several lives over the years. The park is a popular family picnicking spot and alcohol-free. Little evidence exists of the town that once existed nearby, platted in 1903. In 1911, a hydroelectric plant at the falls — now unused but still standing — began providing electricity for nearby Redmond, which quickly grew beyond the tiny town of Cline Falls.
