WELCOME TO 

PRINEVILLE, OREGON

PIONEER SPIRIT AND EXPANDING RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS

 

The oldest city in Central Oregon, Prineville was established in 1868 and incorporated in 1880. It is the county seat of Crook County and gateway to the Ochoco Mountains, Ochoco National Forest and Crooked River National Grassland. There are many sites for camping, hiking, fishing and a host of other nature-oriented recreation activities.

Established residential areas in town offer a mixed selection of homes. Newer neighborhoods such as Ochoco Pointe and IronHorse have extended residential development eastward toward Barnes Butte. Among older neighborhoods, close-in Ochoco Heights features tree-shaded streets and city views. Our real estate brokers know the area well and can help you find houses for sale.

A downtown focal point is the picturesque Crook County courthouse, completed in 1909 and renovated structurally in the early 1990s.

Prineville Reservoir is a popular camping and water recreation spot. Bowman Dam, on the Crooked River, forms the reservoir. It is 15 mi long, covers 3,000 acres and has 43 mi of shoreline. The lake is considered an excellent fishing spot. Two state parks and a private marina and campground accommodate visitors.

Agriculture and forestry were principal contributors to Crook County’s economy for many years. While agricultural activity remains strong, historic sawmills supported by ponderosa pine timber from the Ochoco National Forest disappeared after timber harvesting was restricted for environmental reasons. Some mill work plants remain. Tourism and recreation now share the economic spotlight.
