A small hamlet in Jefferson County is about to turn 100 on Saturday. Metolius, population 700, was named for the Metolius River, which comes from a Warm Springs word for "white fish". This Saturday, the city of Metolius will celebrate it's centennial with a big party beginning with a walk-run and a parade. City Councilor Bill Reynolds says they will have traditional family fun, music, and this will include a special documentary. "And then at 3 in the afternoon, there's going to be a documentary at the depot, the old train depot.  And that's going to go over the history of the City from the beginning until now, and they've interviewed a lot of the people that had anything to do with the Metolius in the past." Reynolds says it's important, especially for the younger generation, to come out and learn about the history of the area.
