Island City

Prairie City, Oregon, is a charming small town of 910 (and growing!!). This quaint little town is the consummate picture of small town America, nestled at the edge of the prairie, by the John Day River in Eastern Oregon. In fact, if you stroll through downtown Prairie City, you will find lovingly cared for historic buildings that tell the story of yesteryear. This small community enjoys unsurpassed beauty, a small yet strong business district, an arts community, high speed internet service, and wonderful schools in a safe environment.

Prairie City, Oregon, sits on the north side of a wide prairie that inclines to the base of the Strawberry Mountain Range at the upper end of the John Day Valley, on the John Day River. The current economy includes ranching, a lumber mill, a wood-fired co-gen electric power plant, and a number of retail vendors and public services.
