This town took its name from the location of its post office, on the Alexander Stalker ranch, half way between Pine and Cornucopia. The population was 337 at the 2000 census, and grew to an estimated 355 by 2009.[1] Contents 1 History 2 Geography 3 Demographics 4 Economy 5 Notable people 6 References 7 External links History The area was originally used as hunting territory by the Nez Perce, Umatilla and Shoshone tribes. It was explored and mapped by Benjamin Bonneville in the 1830s, and first settled by Euro-Americans in the 1860s. The smaller national forests now combined into the local Wallowa–Whitman National Forest were created in 1908. While a post office was established in 1887, the town was platted in another location in 1907, the post office moved there in 1908,[4] and it incorporated in 1909. The town has always been primarily a farming and ranching community. There was a small gold rush to nearby Cornucopia, now a ghost town, and some timber industry in the early 20th century. Major employer the Idaho Power Company now operates three hydroelectric dams on the Snake River. Halfway earned a place in the history of the dot-com era when it received, and accepted in December 1999, an offer to rename itself, Oregon in exchange for $100,000, computers for the school, and other financial subsidies. Since the company was bought by eBay in February 2001, it has not been made clear whether eBay would honor the numerous financial considerations. The original financial conditions that led to the city accepting's offer returned in 2004, when the company owning a promissory note secured by its fairgrounds and improvements demanded payment of over $530,000. Foreclosure of the 83-year-old fairgrounds would endanger the future of the yearly Baker County Fair and the annual rodeo.
