This week's story map brings us to Oregon City, the location of the first GLO office in Oregon and one of the oldest communities on the west coast. Much of Oregon City’s importance lies in its early history as the first permanent Euro-American settlement in the Willamette Valley and the first incorporated city west of the Rocky Mountains. The town was established in 1829 by the Hudson’s Bay Company, and it was incorporated in 1844. It first became the home to fur traders and missionaries. As the end of the Oregon Trail, it soon became the final destination for many early immigrants. Read more on ArcGIS Story Maps.
The GLO web site provides live access to Federal land conveyance records for the Public Land States, including image access to more than 12 million Federal land title records issued between 1788 and the present.
The site also hosts images of survey plats and field notes, land status records, and control document index records, and is the most visited website in the Department of the Interior. Visit glorecords.blm.gov for more information.
