1859 First Issue Flashback: Summer 2009

Have you ever wanted to see our first issue? Now is your chance. The first issue of 1859 articulated our mission in the first few lines from editor Kevin Max:
“There are few places in this world where you can surf the ocean, hike behind waterfalls in a temperate rain forest, ski in a high alpine setting and raft through desert canyons all within a six-hour drive. In Oregon, you can. 1859 Oregon’s Magazine captures what it truly means to live, work and play in Oregon by making us intellectual, recreational, historical and culinary tourists in our own state.”
