Dufur ...
The small Oregon community of Dufur lies 15 miles south of The Dalles, just off of Highway 197.

Early Dufur ...
The Dufur area was first settled in 1852, and in 1872 Andrew and Burnham Dufur bought a farm where today's community is situated. In 1878 the Dufur Post Office was established and named after the Dufur family.

Dufur and the Barlow Road ...
Dufur's main street follows the Barlow Road. There is a historical marker on Fifteenmile Creek (which runs through town) and Oregon Trail exhibits at the Dufur Historical Museum.

Balch Hotel ...
The Balch Hotel, built in 1907, is located on the south side of Dufur. It was built on the site of an earlier stagehouse which served users of the Barlow Toll Road. The early Hotel itself however primarily served passengers on the Great Southern Railroad which came to Dufur in 1905. The Balch Hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 (#87001469).
