The Dalles Victor Trevitt platted the first expansion of the original 1855 "Dalles City" townsite in 1860, and continued to extend his addition in response to economic developments. The district saw the first flour mill and electrical and water systems in The Dalles, one of the area's earliest Catholic churches, and direct connection to transportation networks including the Columbia River Highway and the railroad. Surviving buildings in the district, primarily residential, reflect a continuous spectrum of architectural styles from 1864 to 1937.[11]

Restricted listings

Certain individual listings on the NRHP are archaeological sites or other sensitive areas that could be subject to looting or other damage. Consequently, the National Park Service and the State Historic Preservation Office — the authorities that oversee the NRHP and its information — sometimes choose to restrict (i.e. decline to publish or otherwise release) details regarding the locations of such sites. In order to respect this restriction, the two such listings in Wasco County are presented below without photos or location details.

[5] Site name[6] Date listed[6] City or Town Vicinity[8] Summary
32 Fivemile Rapids Site (35 WS 4) December 19, 1974 The Dalles[6] Yielding remains beginning soon after the end of the last glacial period, this archeological site (along with other nearby sites) provides a nearly continuous record of human occupation from at least 9000 BCE to 1820 CE. It also provides some of the earliest available evidence of fishing in human economy.[17]
33 Mosier Mounds Complex February 24, 2003 Mosier This collection of stone walls, pits, and mounds amid a basalt talus slope is the largest and most complex of a number of similar Native American sites in the southern Columbia Plateau. The site predates the arrival of Europeans and probably the local ascendance of Chinookan peoples, but has resisted more precise dating or cultural affiliation.[18]
