Founded in 1881 to serve surrounding ranches, Lonerock hasn't had a post office
since 1963. Townspeople get their mail in Condon. But even without postal service,
a school or a general store, the community has persisted. Its false-fronted community
hall, built around the turn of the last century, has been renovated, and its isolation
has actually attracted a few residents.

A two-story schoolhouse, built in 1903, rises above the east side of town. Its
last high-school class graduated in 1932; the school closed for good in 1961. A tiny,
wooden jail, built in 1891 as a place for rowdy sheepherders to sleep off nights of
revelry, still looks as though it could withstand a prairie tornado.

"The Rock" is a solitary, squarish 35-foot boulder on the south side of town,
beside Lone Creek, a tributary of the John Day River. Beside it stands the renovated
Methodist Church, built in 1898.

We were out to Lonerock, Oregon in 2016 and 2018.

These images were taken with my Nikon D810 and 50mm f/1.4 Zeiss Planar T*
manual focus lens.
