I was an exchange student from Australia who lived in Scio nearly 20 years ago now- OMG It was a great place and friendly too. I hope it hasn't changed in that regard. Is there mint still growing in the district? I still have flashbacks when I open some brands of mint jubes!

Go the Loggers!

I was just curious if you ever moved to Scio.

Default a fantastic town

I think that if you're looking for a city that is still full of good people and good values, Scio is the kind of place you would want to be. The town is full of wonderful people, and I know because I grew up there. Yes there is a new development of homes going in, and probably more on the way, but those kinds of changes are unavoidable.

I agree with a lot of what people said, it's a beautiful place to be, and there's something to be said for being able to step outside on a summer night and see a sky so full of stars that it could almost blind you.

I may be far from there right now but the time I spent growing up there is something I could never replace.

Default Screw scio!

I have been pulled over twice in this town. The first time the cop tolled me when he looked at my plates he thought they were expired, and they were not, so he realy was just looking for an excuse to F with me cause he could tell I wasnt from around there. The second time was evan stupider, and not only because I got a ticket. I accidently drove threw scio when I saw a sign that said 45 mph, so knowing this dam town is a speed trap I slowed down to 35. Then I got pulled over, and was given a speeding ticket for going 35 threw a school zone. Which I did go threw a school zone at 35 but did I mention it was 8 pm at night and dark? Evan though 24 hour school zones where banned in Oregon 3 years ago Scio never got that memo.

My Great Great Grandparents settled in Scio. I remember My aunts store Gills with a pot belly stove that the locals would sit around and talk every am. My Great Uncle was a postmaster in Scio, and both my grandparents were from Scio. As a kid we used to swim in Thomas creek and go to our family McDonald reunion. I have found memories and have visited the area in the past year. Please try to keep small town. There aren't many left.
