English and Spanish sailors spotted the Oregon coast in the 1500s and the 1600s, respectively. Captain Cook mapped part of the coastline while he was seeking the Northwest Passage. Captain Robert Gray, helming the Columbia, discovered a large river and he named it after his ship. A fur depot called Astoria, established by John Astor, was formed in 1811.
For years the British, particularly the Hudson Bay Company, and the Americans occupied this area, with squimishes common. The Oregon Treaty of 1846 resolved the conflict, finally establishing a boundary between British North American (modern day Canada) and the U.S.
The region has a large wood and lumber industry, as well as important paper and salmon industries. Peppermint, blackberries, boysenberries, cover seed crops, black raspberries, loganberries, and hazelnuts are important crops. Electric power from the state's many dams fuels the manufacturing sector.
Popular sites include Crater Lake National Park, Bonneville Dam, Mount Hood, Hells Canyon, Newberry Volcanic National Monument, and the Columbia River Gorge. From its rugged coastline to its large evergreen forests, Oregon is a very pretty state.

Designed for Aging
Many new retirement developments are being "designed for aging." What does this mean? While baby boomers have every intention of staying active during their retirement years, living with design elements that make one's living space more accommodating is also a good idea. In homes designed for aging, the home has just one story. The path from the master bedroom to the bathroom is short, well-defined and well-lit. Door handles are levers instead of knobs. All thresholds are flush. Toilets are a few inches higher. Bathroom floors are made from a no-slip material. In a well-designed home, these are just a few of the features specifically incorporated for aging bodies.
