Condon-It's the People
"While steeped in its rural traditions, Condon has long been known to be a welcoming community to travelers as well as those who would put down roots here."
Thinking of moving to Condon?
The community of Condon, first known as Summit Springs, was built around a fresh and abundant water supply, attracting both settlers and travelers from afar. Condon is the county seat of Gilliam County, and rests atop the high Columbia River Plateau of North Central Oregon. Gilliam County is bordered on the North by the mighty Columbia River on the west by the wild and scenic John Day River and just to the South, the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Recreational opportunities abound at every turn. Much of Condon’s pride comes from the fact that many of the families are third, fourth and fifth generation residents of the area – people whose ancestry came from the ‘Old Country’ to build a new life, and whose present-day descendants continue to contribute freely to the community’s well being.
