Sumpter

Sumpter, a small town buried deep in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon, stands as a monument to times gone by.  Gold mining dominates the history and landscape of the Sumpter Valley, with the dredge remaining as the centerpiece to that era. Rich in mining history, Sumpter, Oregon boasts impressive trail access, several nearby ghost towns, and one massive testament to the mining heritage of Northeast Oregon. In fact, Sumpter is a popular destination for tourists looking to soak in the region’s gold rush history and catch a glimpse of the Western town that once boasted of an opera house, hotels, saloons, churches, a brewery, and three newspapers. During the summer months Sumpter can be reached using the Sumpter Valley Railway or take the Elkhorn Scenic Byway for a beautiful drive.
