Modoc Point, Oregon
Modoc Point post office was established in 1916. Earlier, in 1911, the Southern Pacific Railroad established a station named "Lelu" at this point, and the name was changed to Modoc Point in 1916 to match the post office. Chief Lelu was one of the signatories of the Treaty with the Klamath, etc. on October 14, 1864. "Lelu" was a corruption of the French le loup for "gray wolf".
