About the Oregon History Project

The Oregon History Project is a digital resource of the Oregon Historical Society Museum and Research Library. So far, hundreds of historical records and artifacts from the unique and extensive OHS collections have been digitized, annotated, and organized. The OHP provides historical Narratives written by Pacific Northwest historians and an online Learning Center for teachers and students. The OHP is part of the OHS Digital History Projects, which include The Oregon Encyclopedia and Oregon Wayfinder. Using expert scholarship and OHS's extensive collections of photographs, artifacts, and archival materials, the OHP, The OE, and the Wayfinder make Oregon history free and accessible to everyone.
