  1. Halfway

    Halfway is a small town in Baker County, Oregon, United States. This town took its name from the location of its post office, on the Alexander Stalker ranch, half way between Pine and Cornucopia. The population was 288 at the 2010 census. The town made history in December 1999, when it agreed to rename itself as Half.com, Oregon after the e-commerce company as a publicity stunt and became the first city in the United States to rename itself for a dot-com company. The proclamation was in name only, so the city did not legally change its name.
