1859 Oregon's Magazine

1859 Oregon's Magazine 1859 Oregon's Magazine is a monthly lifestyle magazine capturing the soul of Oregon. Where else in the world can you drive four hours and surf the coast, hike beneath waterfalls in a temperate rainforest, cycle across a high desert and camp in a Forest Service hut beneath a Ponderosa canopy?

Oregon is an amazing state, and it attracts creative people who lead interesting lives. We're pioneers in the sustainable movement, we're bike geeks and techies, Native Americans and cowboys, financiers and vintners. We're urban, suburban, rural and ranch. This is our Oregon and she flies on her own wings, alis volat propiis. In the year 1859, Oregon was admitted to the Union as its 33rd state. That year Henry Green and Washington Irving founded the Portland Gas Light Company, with its shipment of lights arriving a year later from New York to illuminate the streets of Portland for the first time. About a decade later, Oregon's first lighthouse at Cape Blanco opened its eye to guide ships along our perilous coast. Americana songwriter Woodie Guthrie sat down along the Columbia River Gorge in 1941 and a month later had produced 26 songs including, "Roll On Columbia." Almost two decades later, a Bend resident and 10th Mountain Division soldier named Bill Healy opened Mt. Bachelor for skiing with a single rope tow that would elevate the area to among the ski industry's elite pioneering ski resorts and change the course of Central Oregon's destiny. In 2009, Oregon's first statewide cultural magazine was born with 1859, to shine a light on Oregon's cultural riches, to explore the people and the places that make our state one of the world's hidden treasures. Originally a quarterly publication, 1859 transitioned to a bi-monthly format with the July | August 2012 issue. In an intelligent and beautiful format, 1859 explores the landscapes, the personalities, the movers and shakers, the history and the architecture that is the jewel of the Pacific Northwest. For Oregonians, 1859 is an exploration of the state's rich history, it’s incredible destinations and colorful personalities. Departments such as "What I'm Working On," "Game Changers" and "Sound Off" resonate with residents of Oregon. Departments such as "From Where I Stand," "The Road Reconsidered," "Home Grown," "72 Hours" and "Top 5" are visual and editorial pollen that attracts the travel bee. Come with us and, through photography, word and wit, we'll explore Oregon's vast cultural, topographic, social and sustainable treasures.

Mission: Into the soul of Oregon.

This is what the Oregon trail looks like now. If Idaho Power and Pacific Corp have their way, it will look very different. A proposed high-voltage power line by the two privately owned entities would run 300 miles from Boardman, Oregon to Hemingway, Idaho. When construction is over a national historic treasure will sit beneath privately owned power lines for the primary benefit of Boise residents.

Over the past two months, Statehood Media has worked on Healing, a collaborative project that brings together Ashland cellist Daniel Sperry and Oregon Ballet Theatre dancer Xuan Cheng. We started to find a way to express hope during the anxiety surrounding the pandemic. We harnessed the talents of these amazing artists to create something beautiful and healing in a time where we need both.

Daniel Sperry @cellotroubadour, a classically trained cellist who plays in Lithia Park during warm months, created a soaring and complex original score for this piece on both cello and piano. Xuan Cheng @chengxuan119 from Chenzhou, China and a principal ballerina at OBT for the past nine years created the original dance and movement for Healing. Jessica Smith, a recent graduate of the University of Oregon School of Journalism was our lead videographer and editor.

What feeling does this evoke? Does this inspire you?

Curious about what hotel lodging looks like now? We were, too! Read on...

As we cautiously take our first steps back into local and regional travel, we want to give you a glimpse of what some lodging properties are doing to assure your safety.

We visited Jupiter Next in Portland and Hood River Hotel in Hood River to give you two perspectives of the new travel paradigm.

The most obvious factor is how lodging properties are putting more emphasis on cleaning and sanitizing. Rooms at both properties were pristine. They are taking new precautions to reduce exposure to surfaces that hold germs and spread virus. Sanitizer is omnipresent on each floor of the Hood River Hotel. Jupiter Next is including sanitizer in room bundles.

Masks are common, too. Hospitality staff, in most cases, will be wearing masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Mandatory social distancing will also be in effect, too, making close interactions rare in lobbies, restaurants and bars. Some restaurants, such as Broder Øst replace tactile menus with scan codes that upload them to your smartphone.

Of course, hotels can't completely protect anyone from the spread of coronavirus, they are taking aggressive steps to earn your trust and make your stay as safe as possible. Here are some shots of what we saw and what we did on our first foray back into overnight stays! 🤗

Important: If you participate in Blackout Tuesday on Social Media, please don’t use the hashtag “blacklivesmatter.” It crowds the hashtag, making it harder for BLM organizers to spread crucial information.

We have no doubt you’ll find out why, after you taste his fresh herb focaccia. Or, in honor of #nationalburgerday tomorrow, make (¡fresh!) herb burgers. Either way, your spring-primed tastebuds will thank us later. 😋

From the Oregon Shakespeare Festival artistic director, Nataki Garrett: “It is with great sadness that we are forced to cancel OSF’s 2020 Fall season. My primary goal is to protect the future of this celebrated 85-year-old organization and to bring great theatre back to our stages in 2021.”



Our beloved @osfashland is cancelled this summer, but let’s ensure the show can go on in 2021! You can SUPPORT THEM by donating to their relief fund, and by visiting O!, their interactive digital platform that will immerse you into the artistry of OSF from home.
