History

North Powder was platted in 1885 or 1886 along the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company rail line, having been a stage stop before then.[3]

David Eccles, a Mormon businessman, created the Hall Brothers Lumber Company in the town once the railway arrived.[4]

North Powder prospered because it had an icehouse that supplied the refrigerator cars of Pacific Fruit Express until the icehouse burned down in the 1930s.[3]
