Although the state of Oregon may not be as old as some of the states on the east coast of the United States, that does not mean that it is lacking when it comes to historical hot spots. In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicated the Timberline Lodge, in Government Camp, as a National Historic Landmark as it was considered the finest example of 1930’s era “mountain architecture” by the Works Progress Administration. The Columbia River Highway was constructed between 1913 and 1922, and was the first scenic highway in the United States, allowing visitors access to the most outstanding features of the Columbia River Gorge. For those that want to explore nearby museums, the DiamondStone Guest Lodge is less than 30 minutes away from the High Desert Museum, a museum that is so grand they give you a two day pass just to see it!
