“See the penny that named Portland”

The Oregon Historical Society Museum is a history museum housed at the Oregon History Center in downtown Portland, Oregon, United States. The museum was created in 1898. It houses the Portland Penny that decided the city's name. This 1835 copper penny was flipped to decide between the names of Boston and Portland, with Portland as the winner. As the steward of Oregon’s history, the Oregon Historical Society educates, informs, and engages the public through collecting, preserving, and interpreting the past . . . in other words, Oregon history matters. The Oregon Historical Society is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.
