Nicknames On The Land

I’m sure Gerald Carson’s article on city nicknames in the April American Heritage will generate a lot of comment. My own favorite is the rural community of Tillamook on the northern coast of Oregon. Located on a large bay with a backdrop of dairy farms and the finest timber-growing land in the Coast Range, it is widely known as the “City of Cheese, Trees, and the Ocean Breeze.”

We hope you enjoy our work.
