Welcome to the City of
The City of Prairie City appreciates our citizens continued efforts in water conservation. Please note that because of continued demands on our water system resulting in low water table levels we are asking that consumers restrict outside usage of city water. This restriction allows us to maintain a safe water level in our reservoir for sanitary usage and fire emergencies. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Director Chris Camarena at 541-620-3100 or City Hall at 541-820-3605.

The Great Depression ended this connection, although the shortened Sumpter Valley Railroad continued to transport logs to sawmills in Baker city until 1947. The original train depot in Prairie City has been restored and is now the DeWitt Depot Park Museum. Read more»
