The Community
Alsea is a rural community located in the forested hills of the Coast Range of Oregon about 25 miles west of Corvallis. The Alsea River, with its interlacing network of feeder streams, is renowned for its fish runs and scenic beauty. The river flows beside the town itself, which is nestled among hills and agricultural fields. Only 20 air miles from the coast, the area is known for its fresh marine air, which ensures a mild climate year-round. A scenic road follows the river 40 miles to the coast.
The local economy was largely dependent upon the timber industry. The drive to the mid-Willamette Valley is reasonable, however, many residents now commute to jobs in Philomath, Corvallis and Albany. Residents still share a strong sense of family and community. Local efforts have resulted in the town's own medical clinic, an excellent childcare facility and preschool, a retirement home and a strategic action plan to help chart the community's future. Alsea residents have a long tradition of working hard to maintain or improve the quality of their lives.
