Clem is an unincorporated community in Gilliam County, Oregon, United States,
at an elevation of 1,903 feet. It was named for Clemens Augustus Danneman, who was
born in Germany, came to Oregon in 1879, and owned a ranch in Gilliam County. The
Clem post office was open between November 1884 and April 1937. Clem "also was a
station on the Condon branch of the Union Pacific Railroad." Now, Clem is on Oregon
Route 19 about 4 miles southeast of Mikkalo, Oregon.

There's not much in Clem now. A few homes, ranches and farms. Like many
Eastern Oregon towns, when they closed the rail line the town slowly died.
Can't tell if this old building was a school or a grange hall... perhaps
it served as both. Looks to be about 100 years old.
