Gaston is small town America in a phenomenal location! The town is small but its rural setting is gorgeous with widely varied landscapes. The Chehalem Ridge is on the east and includes Laurelwood and Bald Peak with all its luxury and view properties. The Coast Range lies to the west and includes Cherry Grove, the Patton and Scroggins valleys, and Hagg Lake, a recreational playground is just northwest of town. Sitting on the fertile valley floor in between is Gaston, one of a dozen Yamhill County towns. Gaston is just 2/10 of a square mile; about 5 blocks along Hwy 47 and about 8 blocks wide. The town’s population of less than 700 people is 10 times larger than its first recorded census in 1860.

  • The crossroads of Oregon’s technology center and rural living: Property prices remain among the most attractive in the area, but range to the very expensive luxury levels. Location is always the key to buying well and my opinion is that the future is very bright for this crossroads of technology and wine, of rural and small town America, of valley and mountain, farming and wildlife.

  • Wineries: There are few but budding signs that Gaston will take advantage of the agri-tourism opportunities especially related to wine. In rural Gaston there are a handful of wineries.

  • Henry Hagg Lake: One of the popular geographic features of the area is Haag Lake. Created by a dam, this area is owned by the Federal Government but includes a park managed by Washington County with boating, fishing, picnicking and hiking.
