In the fall of 1977, a sign went up in the Williams Building, in downtown The Dalles, on Fourth and Washington Streets. The Wasco Area Education Service District opened its doors to students from all walks of life and all levels of previous education.

Within a few years, the name was changed to Treaty Oak Education Center, and in 1989, local citizens voted to make Treaty Oak a community college, and to change the name to Columbia Gorge.
