The 2000 census found that almost all the 1,600 residents (91 percent) were white. There were only nine blacks. There were 146 Hispanics or Latinos of any race. Other residents included 19 American Indians or Alaska natives and 12 Asians.[1]

It was a relatively aged population, the median age being 45 years compared with 35 years for the nation as a whole.
