Rice Elevator


Dad and I have been trying to locate this place over the past year and a half. Finally, this being on my birthday, Melissa and I stumbled upon the metropolis of Rice. Located on the uplands of Wasco County. Horace Rice planted the first crop of wheat here back in the 1860’s. Over the years, he increased his property to over a 1000 acres. Pretty much dry acreage. And in 1905, when the Great Southern Railroad was built along Fifteenmile Creek, Rice was given its name. In 1980, there wasn’t much left. Fast forward to 2014, very little evidence other than this weathered grain elevator.
