Oregon History

Oregon and the Pacific Northwest has a rich history. In the 1840s, the Oregon Trail opened the Northwest, starting with a dribble of people, and turning into a rush after the passage of the Oregon Donation Land Act in 1851. This act allowed each man 320 acres and his wife an additional 320 acres. If you are interested in the Oregon of your ancestors, visit some of the informative Web sites below.
