Idanha to the Cascade Range summit via Santiam Junction Beginning in 1872, the colorful Thomas Egenton Hogg set out to build a transcontinental railroad terminating on the Oregon coast. By the time of his venture's final bankruptcy in 1894, completed track reached only from Yaquina Bay to Idanha in the Cascade foothills, with grade work under way east of Idanha to the summit. The historic district protects the remaining signs of the grade work east of Idanha, as well as the sites of two construction camps. Abandoned part way through construction, these remnants provide a unique window onto construction methods and living conditions in 19th century railroad camps.[7]
