Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest of the western United States. The Columbia River delimits much of Oregon's northern border with Washington, while the Snake River delimits much of the state's eastern border with Idaho. The 42 degree northern parallel path borders the southern border with California and Nevada. Oregon has been home to many indigenous peoples for thousands of years.
In the early to mid-16th century, the first European traders, explorers and settlers started exploring Oregon on the Pacific coast. In 1565, the Spaniards began sending ships from the Philippines to navigate the Kuroshio River, a vast circular route through the northern part of the Pacific. Juan de Fuca had done detailed mapping and studies of ocean currents in the Pacific Northwest by 1592, including the Oregon coast and the Oregon Strait which bears his name.
Nehalem Valley tells the story of the discovery of objects such as beeswax pieces and a silver vase with lid, which is connected to the wreck of the San Francisco Xavier of 1707. The Spanish ship 250, which had not landed for many years after reaching Cape Mendocino in California, landed in a wreck in Oregon.
In 1843, an autonomous government was formed in Oregon County, and in 1848 the Oregon Territory was founded. Oregon became the 33rd state in the USA on February 14, 1859.
