Dairy is an unincorporated community located in Klamath County, Oregon, United States.

History[edit]

According to Oregon Geographic Names, Dairy was named by William Roberts, a pioneer settler, who chose the name after having lived in another community by that name in the eastern U.S. The post office of Dairy was established in 1876.

Dave Bliss was proprietor of the General Store in Dairy, and recently had a road in the area named after him.[1] Bliss road was formerly known as Squaw Flat Road, but was renamed to comply with a 2001 Oregon State Law and not offend Native Americans.[citation needed] Bliss Road runs between Oregon Route 140 and the community of Sprague River.
