  • I'm mostly interested in history as it surrounds state institutions (government, education), but I'm from Oregon City, so I like all sorts of Oregon history. akendall 13:56, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

(History of the) History of Oregon[edit]

Besides general articles on Oregon history (see priority list below), one of the main priorites of the WPOR History Subproject is to create an article on the History of Oregon.  Done This article currently redirects to the History section in the main Oregon article. Back in August of 2006 User:EngineerScotty created a subpage of WPOR for a rough draft of the History of Oregon article, here: Wikipedia:WikiProject Oregon/History of Oregon. Right now it is mostly just an outline, but as more individual history articles are created, they can be used to flesh out the main article.

For the Oregon article to reach Good article or Featured article status, it will need to have a History section that uses the {{main}} template to link to a well-written History of Oregon article.

Discussion about suggestions for content and subsections of the History of Oregon page, including a collection of history templates, are on the talkpage.

Feel free to add any article suggestions below.

Other priorities[edit]

Articles to start[edit]

Drafts of history articles[edit]

Articles to expand[edit]


  • Go through Category:History of Oregon and make sure the articles within have as many inter-connecting links as possible as new articles may have been created that may have not been linked where appropriate.
  • Make Oregon Forts navigation template. List by type, military, HBC, other.
  • Clean up articles on missions, and probably make navbox.
