Oregon turned 165 on Valentines Day

Oregon turned 165 on Valentines Day

Oregon became the 33 state in the Union in 1859, making her 165 years old on this Valentines Day. We think that qualifies her for Social Security. She’s earned it.

Did you know The Beaver State is the only state with different images on each side of its flag? Or that more than 90% of all Hazelnuts come from Oregon? Yup. You can read more about our great state on our About Oregon feature (on this website), and even hear the State song or anthem.

Now, go put some hazelnuts in your hot chocolate.

Happy 165th birthday, Oregon.
