Founded in 1898, a year remembered by fashion historians as "the year of President McKinley eyebrows," the Oregon Historical Society has sought to preserve and promote the history, politics, and culture of the nation's 33rd state through publications, lectures, and the exhibits at the Oregon History Museum. Befriend the past with the Oregon My Oregon exhibit, an award-winning, interactive look at the state's odyssey that features more than 50 displays showcasing numerous artifacts and antiques, including a 9,000-year-old sagebrush sandal. Peace Corps: 50 Years of Service, which runs through June 19, celebrates a half century of peacemaking with photographs, testimonials, artifacts, and personal correspondence from more than 80 Oregonian and Washingtonian volunteers.
Also appearing is Oregon Rocks! A History of Popular Music in Oregon, an upcoming exhibit that will explore the relationship between music and the surrounding community, highlighting local musical notables such as Johnny Ray, The Dandy Warhols, and Paul Revere, the patriotic musician who spread the news of the British armys advancement by rocking in the street all night long.
This Groupon also grants guests admission to the Oregon Historical Society's extensive research library of old photos and records, ideal for amateur sleuths looking to solve that triple mosquito homicide from 1903.
