We were out to Cecil, Oregon in 2014 and 2016

Cecil is an unincorporated community in Morrow County, Oregon, United
States. It is located about 14 miles northwest of Ione, on Oregon Route 74.
The Oregon Trail crossed Willow Creek here, and it was once an important
stagecoach stop.

Cecil was the name of a railroad station on the Heppner Branch of the
Union Pacific railroad. In 1867, a post office named "Cecils" was
established a mile south of the station; it ran until 1870. Cecil post
office was established in 1902 and closed in 1974. The Cecil family,
including William Cecil, a pioneer of 1862, owned large amounts of land
in the area and donated the site for the post office.

In 1940, Cecil had a population of 15. As of 1993, Cecil had a store and
gas station. The store is no longer operating. In 1993, the Union Pacific
Railroad filed for abandonment of the Heppner Branch. The last train ran
on the line on June 30, 1994 and all traces of the line including bridges,
tracks, and depots were gone by August 1994.
