Welcome to  Donald!

Welcome to the beautiful and quaint town of Donald, Oregon. The City has a rich history in agriculture, industry, business, and family. Sometime during the period of 1840 to 1860 Donald was first settled by farmers and loggers from the Midwest. By the early 1900’s Donald was a main station for the Oregon Electric Railway. From its railway heritage is how the city’s name came about. The City was named after R.L. Donald who was an official of the construction company that built the railway. The railroad in Donald is heavily used today.
