Sublimity is a vibrant and growing city of 3050 residents located along State Hwy 22, just 20 minutes from I-5 and the Capital City of Salem; It is also the gateway to the Santiam Canyon and the recreational areas of Detroit Lake, Sisters, and Mt Baker. Sublimity is primarily a residential commuter city that depends on employment for the most part in Salem or Stayton. This can be attributed to the lack of local employment opportunities and the city’s desire to remain more of a residential city with a rural atmosphere.
