North Gilliam County Health District is located in Arlington, Oregon.

Waste Management and Wind Farms employ the majority of the people who live in the area. A major solar energy project has also created an influx of people, who are temporarily working and living in the area. 

No traffic lights are found in the county and people living here appreciate a more laid-back pace of life.

Wind Surfers and Kite Boarders flock to the area to enjoy the wind on the Columbia. Fishing the Columbia and John Day Rivers and hunting numerous game animals in the area also bring many people to the area.  China Creek Golf course and a shooting range also add to the numerous recreational activities found in the area. 

Arlington schools offer smaller class sizes and more individual attention that result in students graduating with confidence in their knowledge and the social skills to be successful in any career they choose. 

Those living in Arlington are used to plenty of sunshine and hot summer weather.  The winters are generally cold but rarely see more than two total weeks of snow and ice.
