Welcome! Gilliam County is located in the heart of Eastern Oregon on the mighty Columbia River. It is made up of proud, century-old farming communities nestled between miles of rolling, golden wheat fields. The area is steeped in American history -- from the wagon trains that rumbled through on the Oregon Trail to our multiple Nobel Prize winners.
