History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Enterprise was platted in 1886, and in 1887 residents considered Bennett Flat, Wallowa City, Franklin, and other possibilities before voting for Enterprise during a community meeting in a tent owned by a mercantile company. The name was meant to reflect "the policy of its inhabitants". In November 1887, a post office was established in the community, and Catherine Akin became the first postmaster.[1] The city was incorporated by the Oregon Legislative Assembly on February 21, 1889.
