Blakeley is an unincorporated historic community[1] in Umatilla County, Oregon, United States between Pendleton and Milton-Freewater. It is just north of Oregon Route 11 on Wildhorse Creek. Blakeley was a station on the Union Pacific Railroad.[2] The station was first named "Eastland" after Robert E. Eastland who received a patent on land nearby in 1880.[2] The name was later changed to honor William M. Blakley (alternately spelled "Blakeley" and "Blakely"), an Oregon State Representative from 1902–1906, and a wheat grower in the area.[2] The elevation is 1417 feet (432 m).[1]
