History of Portland Oregon

McLaughlin – First Woman to Oregon

Harvey Scott’s classic work on the History of Portland Oregon is this basis behind this collection. Written at the turn of the century while Oregon was still young, Harvey heard figurative bands of progressive people marching through Oregon and moving it toward modernity, but also wanted to hold onto that old pioneer flavor that had made the region unique. In this manuscript you will find the history of this city of Portland, written by somebody who has been deemed one of the most qualified writers of Pacific Northwest historical material.

For the genealogist, check out the biographies found in the Men of Portland section. Also there are brief sketches of early settlers, important businessmen, etc.
