  • Originally named Alkali, Arlington came into existence as a place for shipping cattle down the Columbia River. It was incorporated as Arlington by the Oregon Legislative Assembly on November 20, 1885.[7]

    Following the completion of the John Day Dam, the original location of Arlington was moved to higher ground in 1963 to avoid the resulting inundation

  • Arlington is small, I’ll grant you that. But it has a park, a rest area on the river, a cafe, a grocery store and a gas station. I fill up there all the time. Doesn’t seem like a ghost town to me.
