Description:
A post office was opened in Theodoric Cameron’s (or Theodore Cameron,) general store in April 1879. It served the local settlers at the mouth of the Little Applegate River. Cameron was the only postmaster and named the post office due to his Republican Politics, and Unionist leanings during the American Civil War. The post office lasted until September 1891. Cameron came to Oregon on the 1852 Wagon Train.
