The county seat of Sherman county is located about 30 miles southeast of The Dalles and 20 south of the Columbia river; receives mail daily by stage from Grant, on the OR&N, via Wasco. It is also connected by tri-weekly stage with The Dalles. Moro is perhaps the most enterprising town in the county, and with rail communication with the outside world would increase rapidly in size and business importance, as it is situated in the approximate center of an immense wheat-producing district. At present the town has a bank [Moore Bros.], foundry and machine shop [Moro Manufacturing Co.], two hotels, livery stable, newspaper. The headquarters of the Moro Mercantile Co., a firm which maintains general stores in several of the towns of the county, are also located here. A flour mill is also to be built in the near future by the Moro Flouring Mill Co., a local concern recently incorporated.

The metropolis of Sherman county is located about 11 miles south of the Columbia river, and is the headquarters and present southern terminus of the Columbia Southern railway. Since the completion of the above road, which connects Wasco with the O.R. & N. Co. at Biggs, in the fall of 1897, the town has grown rapidly, its population being doubled, and the number of business houses being increased by about a dozen. Wasco is soon to have a flour mill, which will be erected by the well-known Walla Walla mill owner, H.P. Isaacs. The mill will have a capacity of 100 barrels per day, and will be in charge of Mr. E.S. Isaacs. After the first of January 1898, Wasco will be the only incorporated town in Sherman county.
