Wemme /ˈwɛm/ is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. It is located within the Mount Hood Corridor, between Welches and Brightwood along U.S. Route 26. It is one of the communities that make up the Villages at Mount Hood.

The community was named for E. Henry Wemme, a Portland businessman who bought a Locomobile in 1899, the first automobile in Oregon.[1] He also bought the right-of-way to Barlow Road in 1912, bequeathing it to the public after his death two years later.
