Alpine, Morrow County, OregonEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Just what there was to suggest the name Alpine for a post office in eastern Morrow County about 20 miles north of Heppner, can not be imagined, but that is the record. This office was established October 3, 1884 with G. H. Parsell first postmaster. It continued in service until July 27, 1894, when it was closed out to Galloway, a nearby office. A directory for 1886 says Alpine was a special supply post office, but there is no explanation of the term. The locality is not alpin ein character. As of 1940 a diagram of Morrow County showed a precinct called Alpine in the noreast part of the county.
