Hauser is an unincorporated community in Coos County, Oregon, United States.[1] It is along U.S. Route 101, 7 miles (11 km) south of Lakeside and 6 miles (10 km) north of North Bend.[2] Hauser is on the edge of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area near North Slough, a tributary of Coos Bay once known as the North Inlet of Coos Bay.[2][3] It is a station on the Central Oregon and Pacific Railroad (formerly the Southern Pacific).[4]

Hauser was originally named "North Slough" but it was decided the name was unsuitable.[4][5][6] It was renamed after Eric V. Hauser of Portland, who, with his sons, had a construction contract on the railroad in about 1914.[4][6] Hauser is also the namesake of the library at Reed College in Portland and he once owned the Multnomah Hotel.[7][8] Hauser post office ran from 1915 to 1957.[4]

Charles D. McFarlin of Massachusetts built the first known cranberry bog on the West Coast in what is now Hauser in 1885.[9][10]
