History Of Oregon

The Europeans came to the area aroun. 1565. In the 17th and 18th centuries, Oregon was mapped by the Lewis and Clark expedition in their search for the Northwest Passage. In 1846, the border between U.S. and British territory was formally established. The part of the territory that was given to Britain would ultimately become part of Canada. Oregon was officially admitted to the union as a state on February 14th, 1859. Portland, Oregon’s largest city, is considered one of the top cities in the nation in terms of quality of life. The state is one of the nation's top producers of wine. There are over 300 wineries in Oregon.
