Historic Map - Oregon State & Washington Territory - 1880

Colton's township map of Oregon & Washington Territory, issued by the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co. Shows relief by hachures, drainage, cities and towns, township and county boundaries, Indian reservations, ocean routes, and railroads with emphasis on the main lines.

From the late 1790's until the 1840's, the Washington and Oregon had been part of the much larger Oregon Territory, which was divided between Great Britain, France, Spain, and Russia - though the United States quickly took over the Spanish claim. After the War of 1812, the Treaty of 1818 gave the land solely to Britain. By the early 1840's, there was a movement to turn Oregon Territory into it's own nation, though this was short lived and by 1846, the land was annexed by the United States. In 1848, the US began to organize the territory, and by 1858 the land was divided between Oregon and Washington Territory. In February of 1859 Oregon was officially admitted to the Union. In 1863 the borders of Washington Territory were reorganized, due to the newly created Idaho Territory. This created the current borders of Washington State, which was admitted to the United States in 1889. This beautiful map provides a look at the early days of the states.
