Eastern Oregon

Welcome to Oregon’s corner of the Wild West.

 

Out here wide-open skies, sagebrush plains and craggy mountain ranges lay claim to the landscape. What you make of this region’s vast outdoor playground is entirely up to you: ski down remote slopes, fish for hungry steelhead or simply watch wildlife roam by. Earn that hearty meal in cowboy country and don’t forget the craft beer.

For a dose of history there are wagon ruts from the Oregon Trail, vibrant prehistoric fossil beds and eerie ghost towns. And those are just starting points. Your next great story is waiting to be uncovered in Eastern Oregon.

Vet Ink: Tattoos Inspired by Military Service at the Coos History Museum

The Coos History Museum presents Vet Ink: Tattoos Inspired by Military Service from October 17 through Summer 2019.

Historically, tattoos have many meanings and misconceptions. Traditionally, military inspired tattoos depict the story of wars and battles, and symbolize lost soldiers or achievements in service. This new exhibition, created in honor of the more than 8,000 Coos County Veterans, takes a closer look at the stories behind the "ink" through a series of audio, visual and interpretive panels.

Active duty military families, as well as veterans and their spouses/partners receive free admission to The Coos History Museum through a grant from the Coquille Indian Tribe and other donors.
