Site history relating to Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition?[edit]

Interestingly, this site was mentioned in the 1903 Olmsted Portland park plan. See here: wikisource:Olmsted report on Portland, Oregon parks#LEWIS AND CLARK SQUARE. I'm curious if the World Forestry Center might have been built on or near this site -- perhaps this is the building the Olmsteds were referring to? Would like to find out exactly where that building was. It burned down in 1964. -Pete (talk) 15:49, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Aha -- the answer is in the historical plaque depicted on the page. I will try to update the World Forestry Center article to capture this better. -Pete (talk) 16:38, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
