Park name[edit]

It may seem odd to call the protected area Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks rather than Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, but this seems to be how the managers are presenting it to the public. I know technically the legislation called it the latter. However, the "National and State" usage is consistent with a prior example: "Redwood National Park" within Redwood National and State Parks. — Eoghanacht talk 13:11, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Cape Disappointment[edit]

I wonder if anyone could explain how/why Cape Disappointment is named as such? 01:12, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, I'd say click on the Cape Disappointment link, but alas, it only links to a disambig page... Katr67 01:57, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
What a disappointment! Well, maybe I can help. When folks were looking for the Northwest Passage from the ocean, somebody found a big ol' river. But the Columbia sandbar made it real hard to find it again. Further attempts at exploration lead to disappointment - one of them on a cape just north of the Columbia. I read that, I think, in the book called "Oregon" by Judy Jewell. I'll try to look it up and attach names and dates. -Pete 02:29, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Redirects to here[edit]

I get disappointed (pun unintended) every time I click a link to something like Fort Canby and it redirects here and then there's no info. What's the the inspiration behind the redirects? Can't we have separate articles on some of these places and make a "see also" with a link to this article? We need info on:

Yes, it would be nice to link to the actual Parks, not the general collection of parks. Ryoga-2003 (talk) 23:29, 14 March 2009 (UTC)


Documents show that Fort Clatsop National Memorial, the predecessor or the park, was listed on October 15, 1966. See the Oregon National Register List and Book 2 of the National Register of Historic Places, page 7569. It appears that the area was re-registered, on October 13, 1988, as Fort Clatsop and Salt Works. See this Registration Form. It seems the re-registered is the source of the reference number, 66000640. –droll [chat] 22:05, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
