Maxville, OregonPhotos, maps and news from Maxville, Oregon.Updated February 23, 2018.

Maxville is an unincorporated community and former company town in northern Wallowa County, Oregon. The town was built in 1923 by the Bowman-Hicks Lumber Company, a large Southern firm with timber and mills in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Bowman-Hicks hired experienced loggers, regardless of race, from the Southern United States. In keeping with the Jim Crow practices common in the South at that time, Maxville had segregated neighborhoods, schools, and baseball teams.
