In 2009, Oregon's first statewide cultural magazine was born with 1859 to shine a light on Oregon's cultural riches.
About 1859 Oregon Magazine
Where else in the world can you drive four hours and surf the coast, hike beneath waterfalls in a temperate rainforest, cycle across a high desert and camp in a Forest Service hut beneath a Ponderosa canopy? Oregon is an amazing state, and it attracts creative people who lead interesting lives. We’re pioneers in the sustainable movement, we’re bike geeks and techies, Native Americans and cowboys, financiers and vintners. We’re urban, suburban, rural and ranch. This is our Oregon and she flies wtih her own wings, alis volat propiis.
