Our Oregon Voices traveling exhibit is a mobile version of the OHS permanent exhibit by the same name. The exhibit has five, three-sided pop-up kiosks that explore some of the important people, industries, organizations, and laws that have shaped the state from the end of World War II to 2020.
In 1910, going to Oregon's places by the sea from Portland wasn’t an easy trip. After 1890, a train connected Portland as far as Seaside. These photos on display were taken between 1906 and 1920 and show the Oregon coast as a place of bustling activity and as a place of solitude. The photos come from an album commissioned by the SP&S (Spokane, Portland & Seattle) Railway to promote Oregon’s coastal beauty and ease of rail travel.
