Umatilla County, Oregon 1922

RIETH

Located four miles west of Pendleton on the Columbia River Highway is the town of Rieth, an important railroad division point of the O.-W. R. & N. Co.

Rieth was established in 1916 and because of its importance as a rail­road center its future possibilities are above the average.

At the present time the permanent population is about 200, but the lay­over crews of he railroad increase this number considerably. The yearly pay roll averages approximately $250,000.

Rieth has a splendid school system and its mercantile and other business establishments are all that could be expected of a town of its size and kind.
