History and Significance of Oregon Centennial,The Centennial Commission was created by 1955 Legislature with a $2,6M grant. The exposition was held at Pacific International Livestock Building and grounds, an area of 65 acres located in North Portland. The Centennial was celebrated from June 10 to Sept. 17, 1959 (symbolically, 100 days). At the Governor’s request, with Congressional Resolution, President Eisenhower on Feb. 14, 1958 called for observance of centennial by American people, invited all states and territories to participate.Festivities where held throughout the state. The major attractions were at the Oregon Centennial Exposition in the Kenton neighborhood of Portland. Some of the festivities included a play, a musical, parades, a new centennial train at the zoo, etc. Local communities created monuments to celebrate the anniversary, notably a Totem Pole was especially constructed for the event, as well as a huge Paul Bunyan statue.
Many communities had to raise money to finance their celebration plans. One method used to raise funds was the sale of Oregon Centennial Tokens.
