Baker County is located in the eastern part of the great state of Oregon, USA. The county was named after Edward D. Baker, a U.S. senator and military leader from Oregon who was killed during the Civil War. The county was officially established on September 22, 1862.

The history of Baker County dates back to the early 1860s when gold was discovered, attracting thousands of miners, settlers, and merchants. This caused a rapid population growth, leading to the establishment of the city of Auburn in 1861, which at its peak was home to more than 5,000 residents. Baker City, now the county seat, was founded in 1865 and eventually eclipsed Auburn's growth.

Baker County has a rich history of mining, timber, agriculture, and transportation. One of the major routes known as the Oregon Trail ran through the county, which facilitated the movement of pioneers to the west. The discovery of gold and other minerals attracted numerous mining operations, later followed by timber and agricultural industries.

In 1884, the Oregon Railway and Navigation (OR&N) Company built a rail line through Baker City, improving the area's accessibility and trade. The rail line connected with Union Pacific Railroad, greatly enhancing the transportation of goods from the eastern part of the U.S. to Oregon.

One fun fact about Baker County is that it hosts the annual Sumpter Valley Railroad's Fall Foliage Photo Train, a scenic excursion that takes passengers through picturesque landscapes to marvel at the beauty of autumn foliage while aboard a historic train. Overall, Baker County offers visitors numerous opportunities to explore its rich history, outdoor recreation, and charming small towns.
