Sisters, Oregon is located at the base of the awe-inspiring Three Sisters mountains and is named for these distinct volcanic peaks in the Cascades Range. First settled as the Camp Polk military outpost in the mid-1800s, the town of Sisters was built on a foundation of ranching, farming, logging, and accommodating travelers crossing over the Cascades. The city was incorporated in 1946.

Coupled with numerous arts and crafts events, Sisters celebrates the spirit of the American West.
