From Lane Co Oregon

The community of Natron had its beginnings during this period as the terminus of a branch line of the Southern Pacific railroad, which extended into the area in 1891. A year later, a post office was opened in the hamlet; it operated until 1924. In the 1920s, the railroad was extended to Klamath Falls and the route was referred to as the Natron Cut-Off. The community was named for the abundance of the mineral known as Natrolite, found in the vicinity.
