Bacona is an unincorporated community in the northern part of Washington County, Oregon, United States.

History

The Bacona post office operated from May 24, 1897 until January 31, 1934. Bacona was named for the first postmaster, Cyrus Bacon. In part due to the Tillamook Burn of 1933, the community went into a decline and now has very few inhabitants, down from a peak of 70 in 1915.

A sawmill, owned by Peter Hoffman, operated in the area and employed eight men.
