Here is a little point of interest that I seemed to remember and had to Google to answer my own question:

In 1910, Baker City residents voted to change the name of the town to Baker, but after another vote in 1989 the official name was changed back to Baker City.

A little more trivia:

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
