The Deschutes Railroad War took off in 1908. Hill’s Oregon Trunk Railway, building up the west side of the river eventually reached the current site of Maupin and designated it “Maupin’s Ferry” on the maps. Running a little behind, Harriman’s Deschutes Railroad, building on the east side of the river, designated his side as “Hunt’s Ferry”.
When W.H. Staats first platted the town in 1908, he named it Maupin’s Ferry. The 1909 plat and the first Post Office used the name Maupin. The railroads arrived in 1911 and the first vehicle bridge was built in 1912, ending the need for a ferry.
In 1921, a huge fire decimated much of Maupin. As part of the rebuilding process, and as a way to better organize fire protection and build a water system, Maupin was incorporated as a city in 1922.
