This marks the spot where the historic vote took place in 1843 that started the process which eventually lead to Oregon becoming a state of the United State of America. Trappers, traders, and settlers, gathered outside of the Hudson Bay Store at Champoeg to take their stand, and after much heated discussion, voted 52 to 50 in favor of forming a provisional government. All 52 persons that voted for it are listed on this kiosk.
