Remote was named by local pioneers for its distance from other settlements. Its post office was established in 1887. Oregon Route 42 used to run through the center of the community, but realignment of the highway has left Remote several hundred yards away, along a side road, around a bend and down below the highway, largely shielded by trees from highway view. The town now consists of a combined store with gas pump and post office, and a couple of houses.
In 1982, a New York Times article says that the post office, store, gas station, and unofficial town hall building was built in 1924 by L. D. Jennings.
