In the late 1800s Minot and Linda Austin arrived and purchased the town site, and renamed it Austin.
Minot ran a stage line between Sumpter and Canyon City.
had been doing historical research on various topics of Eastern Oregon over the years, and he has compiled some valuable facts of the old Austin Cemetery.
The main line of Eccles narrow gauge railroad followed the Middle Fork of the John Day River from Bates, eventually going as afar as Camp Creek.The Oregon Lumber Company built a large while hotel at the side of the track close to the mill.There was a dance hall near the hotel, (later a truck barn was built on the sight of the dance hall, after it had burned down), where many dances were attended by all.Over the years as the industry progressed, much of the work done by the railroad was gradually replaced by trucks that hauled the logs. The trucks hauled more and more and the railroad less and less, until about 19 the last rails were pulled up. If I can find my copies I will send them to you to post. The old maps of the area show the site of Austin as "Newton's."It appears that Mr. Over time she paid off the bank loan and took full possession of the Austin property. when I was a kid working for Henry Ricco in the mid-1950s, Henry told me a story told to him by 'Doc' Edwards -- Linda Austin's brother. Henry Ricco, who bought the Austin place from 'Doc' Edwards after Linda died, found her wedding ring rolled up in a sock inside a shoe in her bedroom.Or, if someone else is interested, they can find them at the Grant County Courthouse. Doc had moved in with Linda to help her, but it was probably the other way around. It was one thing Doc was unable to "borrow."In any case, Minot apparently wrote Linda that he wanted to come back and would be on a particular stage.
