Cheshire, Oregon
Cheshire Oregon 97419

Cheshire was a station on the line of the Southern Pacific Company south of Corvallis. It was near the Long Tom River. It was platted in 1913 as Hubert, but this caused confusion with another station on the same line, Huber, so the railroad company changed the name to Cheshire. The name Hubert was selected to compliment James Hubert Cheshire, a favorite small boy of the neighborhood. Hubert post office was established March 20, 1914, with Henry C. Ball postmaster. The name of the office was changed to Cheshire on May 12, 1914. The Cheshire family had been prominent in the locality. J. H. Cheshire died May 19, 2000, aged 90 years.
