This map is considered one the most accurate and detailed early maps of Oregon. The map is in partial color with counties colored at the borders. The map provides a clear depiction of both population distribution and geography within Oregon. Much of the eastern portion of the state is devoid of population centers, with wagon roads, military roads and railroads denoted. One is immediately drawn to the more densely populated regions along the Pacific coast. A color code reference key is provided to denote the gold regions within the northeastern and southwestern parts of Oregon. General Land Office maps are an essential historical tool for the early mapping of many states in the U.S., especially those west of the Mississippi.
