MURDOCK TALKS PRESENTS

FINDING OREGON: HOW THE STATE WAS DISCOVERED AND NAMED

WITH SPEAKER DARRELL JABIN

Our state is unique in many ways. It has been impacted by Teutonic plates, volcanoes and floods that created our geography and established where pioneers chose to settle. Many countries sent explorers looking for transportation routes and considered claiming ownership of the area. The name Oregon is unique and various beliefs have been shared regarding its’ origin.

Darrell Jabin; Oregon’s Traveling Historian has created a program to explain how geography and the explorations of various countries impacted the discovery of the state of Oregon and how we got our name.
