The historic town of Echo is located in northeast Oregon, eight miles south of Hermiston and 20 miles west of Pendleton. While not visible from the freeway, Echo is only a mile from exit 188, where I-84 and Highway 395 meet.
The town's population is 715 within the city limits and 1,200 within the library service area. Echo is known for its rich history and many historic sites. J.H. Koontz platted the town in 1880. He named it for his then three year old daughter, Echo. More than a century later, Echo Koontz Miller is featured in our city logo. more
