Tyee is the Chinook jargon word for "chief," and the mountain near this small pastoral cemetery was
so named because of its important position to its surroundings. The word comes from the Nootka
language. A Douglas County post office was established in this vicinity on June 7, 1901, with Ewing D. Powell serving as first postmaster. The office was located on Umpqua River, about seven miles due south
of Kellogg. On May 31, 1939, the Tyee office closed to Umpqua.
