Mayger is an unincorporated community in Columbia County, Oregon, United States.[1] Fishing is important to Mayger.[2] It was originally the site of Frenchman Charles Mayger's Mayger Logging Company, which he sold in 1886 to William F. Slaughter.[3][4] Mayger's post office was established three years later and its first postmaster was Charles Mayger. It closed in 1961.[4][5] Mayger is served by the Clatskanie, Oregon post office.
