Welcome to the official web site for the City of Moro, Oregon 97039. The City of Moro is located in the high rolling plateau area of Sherman County, twenty miles south of the Columbia River and at an elevation of 1,799 feet. It is one of the larger small cities along U.S. Highway 97. Moro sits as the County Seat since the separation of Sherman from Wasco County in 1889.

City of Moro is primarily a residential community with a current population estimate of 325.

The Dalles is 42 miles distant and the nearest metropolitan areas are Portland to the west, Redmond/Bend area to the south and Pendleton to the east.

Because of the City's natural setting between the Deschutes and John Day Rivers and the rural atmosphere, people from more urban areas are now being attracted to Moro for retirement and recreational home sites.

With its store, restaurant, motel facilities, and agricultural-related business Moro is able to function as an agricultural service center, supplying residents and tourists with goods and services.
