the City of Madras
COME SEE US AT OUR NEW CITY HALL/POLICE STATION LOCATED AT:
125 SW "E" STREET IN MADRAS (CORNER OF "E" & 4TH STREET)
Madras is a community of diversity and opportunity. Diversity
can be found in a mix of agricultural and manufacturing enterprises,
as well as in the cultural mix of residents. Business opportunity
abounds with projected population and employment growth that
is expected to be among the fastest in Oregon for much of
the next decade.
Incorporated in 1910, Madras and nearby towns of Culver and
Metolius were all communities built as service centers for
a growing agricultural sector and for the booming railroad
industry. Later in the century, Madras experienced another
economic boom with the establishment of the US Army Air Base
during World War II that was and still is capable of accommodating
the B-17 Flying Fortress.
Since that time the community has become an established industrial
center and home to the region's largest private employer,
Bright Wood Corporation.
