最早看到俄勒岡海岸的歐洲人是尋找西北通道的西班牙水手。1840年代時,尾隨在1830年代來到此處的傳教士後面,殖民們乘著篷車行經奧勒崗小俓(Oregon Trail)奧勒崗於1859年加入聯邦,成為美國第三十三州。該州擁有優美的大自然景色,如:克雷特湖國家公園(Crater Lake National Park)及哥倫比亞河峽谷(Columbia River Gorge)。境內的森林覆蓋了整片山脈,這也使得奧勒崗成為木製產品的生產大州。奧勒崗的州花是奧勒崗葡萄,而它的首府是賽倫(Salem)。沒有人知道州名的來源,但有一個說法認為奧勒崗一字也許是取自於威斯康辛河(Wisconsin River),其在1715年的法國地圖上顯示為"Ouaricon-sint"一字。


Spanish sailors in search of a northwest passage were the first Europeans to see what is known today as Oregon. Settlers traveling in wagon trains over the Oregon Trail in the 1840s followed the missionaries who had come in the 1830s. Oregon was admitted as the 33rd state in 1859. Oregon is a state of great natural beauty with places such as Crater Lake National Park and the Columbia River Gorge. Its mountains, covered in forests, make Oregon the leading state in the production of wood products. The state flower is the Oregon grape, and the capital is Salem. The origin of the state's name is unknown, but one theory holds that it may have come from the Wisconsin River, shown in a 1715 French map as "Ouaricon-sint."
