Nestled near the spectacular Blue Mountains, among bountiful orchards, wheat fields and vineyards, Milton-Freewater is a distinct community offering a serene rural lifestyle with quick access to major cities and world-class conveniences. Milton-Freewater enjoys a great location within picturesque northeastern Oregon.
The Milton-Freewater Downtown Alliance (MFDA) is a group of volunteers focused on bringing Milton-Freewater to the fullness of its potential through Main Street revitalization.

Gathering Place Brick Paver Program
In July of 2015, the Milton-Freewater Downtown Alliance and hundreds of local volunteers completed the Gathering Place on the site of the original Dairy Queen near McLoughlin High School.
Paver brick installation at the Gathering Place is now underway. The first batch of engraved bricks were commissioned by the Mac-Hi Class of 1962 and those bricks are in production now.
This community project is both an historical marker and a sign-post for the future. You can be a part of the project by commissioning a brick for engraving. For a donation of $50 per brick you may add your name, memorialize a loved one, or add a brief note to this iconic community space.
$10 For My Town
Freewater will be known for its friendly, family-oriented neighborhood feel. It will be a gathering place with the proper mix of retail, restaurants, wine tasting and activities.
What We Want To Do:
Public Market in Freewater, Create Pop-Up Retail Shops in the Business District, Downtown Music/Concerts, Free Movie Nights
We are asking each citizen to contribute $10 to MFDA to help complete our mission. Let's work together to make Downtown a place to hang out and have fun!
