The reopening has been made possible with the $116,650 raised in support of our “Expansion of the official End of the Oregon Trail” Education Project and the continued collaboration with our partners.
We extend sincere thanks to our grantors, volunteers, staff, supporters, Clackamas County Master Gardeners and partners including the City of Oregon City, Clackamas County Tourism (Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory), Travel Oregon and The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.
Project Support & Partnerships: Historic Oregon City's partners have supported this project in many ways, including developing our new map boards with the City of Oregon City, Clackamas County, Travel Oregon and The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde has also developed and donated items towards their new exhibit to be featured in the iconic "Wagon" exhibit halls. In-kind support from Higgins Signs has enabled HOC to develop our map boards and present them to our visitors in an attractive format.
