Not much left of this old gas station. I'm guessing when they built I-84,
bypassing these towns, the need for this service station went away.

Rieth is an unincorporated community in Umatilla County, Oregon, United
States. It is south of Interstate 84/U.S. Route 30/U.S. Route 395 about
5 miles west of Pendleton near the Umatilla River.

Rieth was an important division point of the Oregon-Washington Railway
and Navigation Company, which named the station at the new shops and
terminals it constructed there after a local pioneer family, the Rieths.
The railway's Pilot Rock Line, constructed in 1907, joined the mainline
in Rieth. This line was once the Umatilla Central Railroad. In 1917, the
Post Office Department established an office named "Reith". The name was
soon corrected by the United States Board on Geographic Names. The post
office closed in 1971. The main railroad yards, now owned by Union Pacific,
were later moved to Hinkle.

In 1922, Rieth had a population of 200, a school, a store, and other
businesses. In 1940 Rieth had a population of 45.
