I am looking to do a trek across Oregon to visit all the historical landmarks. What places are a must see?

I’d start in Baker City and move west! Good start for historical landmarks: Flickr group.

    Jacksonville is a National Historic Landmark, and a wonderful place to visit. This quaint town has fabulous shops, restaurants, historic cemetery, trails and a great feel! There are more than 100 homes on the National Historic Register, and you can take audio, trolley and segway tours to check it all out!

    From Baker City, follow the Barlow Road to the Philip Foster Farm. Hands-on activities for the kids. Real history for the rest of us. Great place to bring the grandchildren! Check out the hours on their website before you go.
