Oregon - Expo Saint-Louis 1904

Oregon at the Exhibition Expo Saint-Louis 1904

This state built its pavilion on the model of the buildings and palisades used by Lewis and Clark in the winter of 1805-06, known in history as Port Clatsop.

This fort was built by the exploring party at the mouth of the Columbia River on Clatsop Indian territory. It was the first building constructed in Oregon territory on the Pacific coast by white men.

The fort is of primitive style architecture, being one story high and irregular in shape. It measures 60 by 90 feet, and cost $5000. Oregon has a particularly remarkable display of agricultural, horticultural and forestry products.
