Drew, Oregon

Drew is an unincorporated community in Douglas County, Oregon, United States.[1] It is located about six miles south of Tiller and 21 miles north of Trail on Oregon Route 227, surrounded by the Umpqua National Forest.[2]

Drew was probably named after Robert Drew, a local resident.[3] Drew post office was established in 1902 and discontinued in 1971.[3] In 1915 the community had a public school, and the nearest railroad point was 32 miles away in Riddle.[4] As of 1990 there were only a few houses.[4] Drew has a general store and a museum in the former Tison School building, built of logs in 1906.[5]

At one time Drew's economy was based primarily on logging, but in a 2006 study, the federal government identified the Milo-Tiller-Drew area as a "community of concern" because of the negative impact the Northwest Forest Plan had on it.[6]
