Welcome to City of Metolius!
A quiet, friendly town surrounded by farm fields and fabulous views, Metolius is located four miles south of Madras on Highway 361.
In 1911 the Oregon Trunk Railroad company platted the town. The railroad surge brought the population of Metolius up to 1,700, though the current population is approximately 710. The town's railroad depot, still used for community and special events, is all that is left to tell the story of the railroad boom days, and continues to provide a unique passage into the past.
The Metolius City Council consists of a Mayor and six Council positions, though one of the Council positions is currently vacant. The City Council meets on the first Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m., with a workship preceeding the meeting at 6:00 p.m.
The Metolius Outreach for Community Action (MOCA) group hosts a monthly pancake breakfast at the Metolius train depot on the 4th Saturday of the month. MOCA also sponsors other community events including the Santa's Workshop and the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
For the past several years, Metolius is very fortunate to have had a community garden. In exchange for pulling weeds, residents are rewarded with the opportunity to harvest fresh vegetables.
