Driving by Oregon's Tiny Towns

We drove by Merrill,
  missing the potato festival
not knowing it's the birthplace
  of Scrooge McDuck

We drove by Chiloquin
  home of the longest miniature
railway system in the world
  with trains to straddle and ride

We drove by Butteville
  now considered a ghost town
though it once had a ferry
  and nearly 300 people live there

We drove by Rivergrove
  which we didn't realize
was a town, with its subtle signage
  and unfinished subdivision
