Portland, OregonPortland Tribune) — Part of the history of Mt. Hood was lost when the Cherryville Post Office burned down on Thursday, May 27. The Sundi History Museum posted unfortunate news on its Facebook page this week. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

According to the book “Sundi Pioneer, Early Settlers, Barlow Road Days,” the first Cherryville Post Office was located at Badger Creek off North Bati Road. A meeting of locals to name the post office led to the name of the community. The name Cherryville was chosen because of the wild cherry blossoms that grow in the area.
