Nehalem

Trip Planner USA  /  Oregon  /  Oregon Coast  /  Nehalem
Nehalem is a city in Tillamook County, Oregon, United States. Incorporated in 1889, the city is on the Nehalem River at Nehalem Bay of the Pacific Ocean. It is bisected by U.S. Route 101. The population was 271 at the 2010 census.HistoryNehalem was named for the Nehalem Indians. They were also known as the Tillamook.Nehalem was once a thriving logging community, but with the decline of the logging industry, the local economy has declined. The city used to stretch over the river on log planks, where a lumber mill cut logs that came down a railroad track on the Nehalem River. Wood pilings that held up this track can be found in the North Fork Nehalem River. On the front of Nehalem Elementary school is a facade which says "Union High School" from when the area was more populous and could support an elementary school and a high school. Currently there is an elementary school and a community pool/center run by the North County Recreation District which hosts a number of classes including those for Tillamook Community College.The city suffers occasional floods. The flood of 1997 in particular was severe; especially to dairy farms.The Portland band Everclear has a song, "Nehalem", about life in the town, on its Sparkle and Fade album.
