Blodgett, Oregon

Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

The small village of Blodgett, Oregon is home to roughly 56 inhabitants. We rented a large farm called Vegantopia while living there. The village only pretty much has a elementary school, a country store, and bare services as it is located next to nowhere. It is a census-designated place and unincorporated community of Benton County Oregon (though on the border of Lincoln county). It is centered where Oregon route 180 meets U.S. Route 20 in the Central Oregon Coast Range 15 miles west of Corvallis. It is close to the confluence of Marys River and the Tumtum river.

The village was named after William Blodgett, a pioneer who settled here in April 1888 with the name of “Emrick” after a local family, then the post office changed the name to Blodgett shortly after under zip code 97326. Under the Philomath School district, there is a small 38 student Blodgett Elementary School covering kindergarten through fourth grade. The region experiences warm and dry summers with an average monthly temperature of 71 degrees Fahrenheit.
