Himes at OHS 


In commemoration of 150 years of Oregon Statehood, a minute of Oregon history is read before the Oregon State Legislature each morning during the 2009 session.  The minutes are provided by the community of historians writing for the Oregon Historical Society and The Oregon Encyclopedia.  Read them here and discover Oregon's rich history a minute at a time.
