Although Tenmile is unincorporated, it has a post office by the same name.[2] The ZIP code is 97481.

Tenmile Post Office was so-named because a pioneer drove his cattle from Happy Valley in Douglas County to an area now known as Tenmile Valley.[3] The distance between the two places was about 10 miles.[3] The post office was established in 1870 as "Ten Mile" and changed to "Tenmile" in 1918.[3]
