“Condon…It’s The People”
Condon is a proud, century-old farming community nestled between miles of rolling, golden wheat fields in Eastern Oregon. This quaint, little town offers residents breathtaking views of the magnificent Cascade Range and a simple, what’s-your-hurry lifestyle. Not to mention fresh air, open skies, and friendly neighbors too.
Condon’s schools are well-known for their low student-to-teacher ratio and personal attention to students’ needs. Our tradition of embracing education is reinforced by the success of our former students, including three Nobel Prizes. Dr. William Parry Murphy in 1934 shared the prize in Medicine for developing a cure for pernicious anemia, and Dr. Linus Pauling earned the prize in 1954 in Chemistry for his molecular structure studies and again in 1962 when he won the Nobel Peace Prize. Countless other Condon alumni have distinguished themselves in fields of medicine, law, business, politics, music, education and agriculture.
When you think of “Small Town America,” you’re thinking of life in Condon. Our streets are safe, our people friendly. It is a community made up of hardworking farmers, generous neighbors, and people who love the outdoors and the traditions of small town living. Go from work for a latte then on to the golf course. No waiting for tee-times. Then settle in on the veranda for the show of a lifetime: the greatest sunsets on the planet.
All of this is less than three hours away from Portland and three hours from Bend, but ages away from worry, work and traffic.
We think of Condon as one of Oregon’s best kept secrets, and we hope you will too.
