Welcome to Joseph
Joseph, Oregon, located at the foot of the Wallowa Mountains, is the jewel of Northeast Oregon. Incorporated in 1887, it has long served as a gateway to incredible recreational opportunities, including Wallowa Lake, the Eagle Cap Wilderness, and the Hells Canyon Recreation Area. Its thriving downtown, with its very own distillery, brewery and a collection of unique shops surrounded by almost a dozen life size bronze sculptures forged by local artists, is a destination on its own.
And make no mistake, Joseph is far more than a tourist destination. Its citizens, some descending from families who have lived in Wallowa County for generations and some who came to visit and decided never to leave, know that Joseph is a uniquely amazing place to call home. Its schools rank among the best in the state and its high standard of living and excellent infrastructure make it an ideal location to live and do business.
If you haven't been to Joseph, its time you discover for yourself what you have been missing.
