Facts about Baker City
Baker City is the seat of Baker County, and holds the distinction of being named after Edward D. Bake. Baker served in the Civil War, and is the only US. Senator killed during military combat. As of the 2020 census, the city had a population of more than 10,000 residents.
The city was platted in 1865, with a post office following in 1866. Baker City was finally incorporated in 1874. By then, it had already been named as the county seat in 1868.
Owning to the 1884 arrival of the Oregon Short Line Railroad, the new city enjoyed significant growth. By the turn of the 20th century, it had become the largest city between Portland and Salt Lake City. The city was known as a trading hub in the Pacific Northwest.
For a time the city had a shorter name. The citizens voted to formally change the name to Baker in 1911. That changed in 1989, when the city held another vote, and chose to return to the longer name of Baker City.
