Welcome to Merrill, Oregon

The City of Merrill was incorporated in 1903 and still epitomizes the same small town charm of that era. A community of 845 people in south central Oregon located just 5.4 miles from the California border. Farming and agriculture related businesses are the primary economy sustaining industries of the area. The city is a proud supporter of agriculture. The main street of Merrill is lined with quaint specialty shops where customers are still greeted on a first name basis and most transactions are still sealed with a handshake. This friendly, tight knit community is considered a modern day Mayberry, a place that is safe for your children to grow up and where neighbor still watches out for neighbor. People may say that progress and traffic move way too slow in Merrill, but just view it as an opportunity to take in the small town atmosphere and to revert back to when life was less demanding and less hurried. Please come and enjoy the small town atmosphere for yourself! Home of the October annual Klamath Basin Potato Festival since 1937.
