Mayville is a forgotten town that has slipped peacefully into history. It uses a Condon phone number; it uses a Fossil Zip Code and no one goes there on vacation. You can find Mayville listed in a book titled "Ghost Towns in Oregon". If you are old enough, you might find a picture of an abandon house, in shambles, that you lived in when you were growing up; it will be there on a shinny page, and in color. There are no mountains in sight; no railroads that whistle, no saw mills with steam whistle that blow loud enough to wake the dead three times a day, no freeway, and no emergency vehicles with high-pitched sirens echoing through town twenty four hours a day. Nevertheless, sometimes, a motor vehicle will pass, through town so quickly, they almost go un-noticed.
