最早看到俄勒冈海岸的欧洲人是寻找西北通道的西班牙水手。1840年代时,尾随在1830年代来到此处的传教士后面,殖民们乘着篷车行经奥勒岗小俓(Oregon Trail)奥勒岗于1859年添加联邦,成为美国第三十三州。该州拥有优美的大自然景色,如:克雷特湖国家公园(Crater Lake National Park)及哥伦比亚河峡谷(Columbia River Gorge)。境内的森林覆盖了整片山脉,这也使得奥勒岗成为木制产品的生产大州。奥勒岗的州花是奥勒岗葡萄,而它的首府是赛伦(Salem)。没有人知道州名的来源,但有一个说法认为奥勒岗一字也许是取自于威斯康星河(Wisconsin River),其在1715年的法国地图上显示为"Ouaricon-sint"一字。


Spanish sailors in search of a northwest passage were the first Europeans to see what is known today as Oregon. Settlers traveling in wagon trains over the Oregon Trail in the 1840s followed the missionaries who had come in the 1830s. Oregon was admitted as the 33rd state in 1859. Oregon is a state of great natural beauty with places such as Crater Lake National Park and the Columbia River Gorge. Its mountains, covered in forests, make Oregon the leading state in the production of wood products. The state flower is the Oregon grape, and the capital is Salem. The origin of the state's name is unknown, but one theory holds that it may have come from the Wisconsin River, shown in a 1715 French map as "Ouaricon-sint."
