Take To The New Heritage Trail - From Home

Heritage Trail at the Ermatinger House

As we look for ways to keep ourselves occupied while we're at home, you can explore the rich history of Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory. After all, there is a lot here; we're the official end of the Oregon Trail. We can also claim the first newspaper west of the Rockies, first long-distance transmission of electricity, not to mention the first incorporated city. There are so many stories to tell, and we've got a way for you to get those audio stories right from the comfort of our own home.

Meet the Mt. Hood Territory Heritage Trail App.

You can also download the app from both iTunes or Google Play. Once you have it, you can take a virtual trip around some of the most fascinating spots in Mt. Hood Territory. Be it the slightly spooky saga of Summit Meadow, or the tale of the Ermatinger House and how it actually played a role in the naming of the city of Portland, there are many stories to hear as the app brings to life the voices of the past - all from the comforts of your home. 

Our heritage is a big part of who we are in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory, so while you're practicing your social distancing and waiting to resume travel, why not learn a bit of history in a fun and unique way from your home?
