Historic Sumpter – Oregon

Sumpter Oregon population in 2010 was 204 people. It is named after Fort Sumter by its Founders and known as the gold rush ghost town of Southern Oregon. Once sported seven hotels, 16 saloons, 3 newspapers, two churches a Opera House in addition to two Banks and a famous red light district.

Three times a year Sumpter has a very famous flea market, Memorial weekend 4th of July and Labor Day weekend. With over a thousand people with umpteen million things to sell, trade and barter for.

Stretched for miles across the Sumpter Valley and following Cracker Creek in the Powder River are mounds and mounds of rock and debris, remnants of the dredges that once operated in this Valley.

A fun historic town to explore and don’t forget the famous flea market, see you there sometime!!!
