Welcome to Oregon, the Beaver State! 

 

Map of Oregon 

 

Oregon was granted statehood in 1859 as the 33rd state, with the capital established in Salem.   The railroads, which were built in the 1870s, allowed the agricultural economy a way to transport their products without direct water access. 

Crater Lake National Park, Mount Hood and Portland are the state's major tourist attractions. Portland, Oregon’s largest city, is known as “The City of Roses”, because its climate has proven ideal for rose cultivation and the city has many stunning public rose gardens.

 

Oregonians are widely-respected for their environmental concerns, as they have passed many laws to protect the land and the ocean. Popular outdoor activities include hiking, biking, hang-gliding, boating, parasailing,  camping,  windsurfing, fishing, and snow-skiing.
