State of Oregon - Eugene City, Lane County

Eugene City, Lane County, PO, Incorporated town of 2,000 inhabitants, and County seat and seat of the State University, is pleasantly situated on the west bank of the Willamette, 75 miles south of Salem, and 124 from Portland. The river, excepting at low water, is navigable to this point, by which means it is reached by steamboats. The Oregon and California Railroad also passes through it, thus making communication complete. The surrounding country is fertile, with a broad extent of agricultural land, giving assurance of a lasting future of increasing prosperity. An excellent academy for teaching the higher branches of science and literature is established; public schools and churches of every denomination are maintained. By act of the Legislature of 1872 the State University was located here, and an elegant building has been erected half a mile south of the town, at a cost of $50,000. The site is commanding, and when the structures are completed the University will become an attractive feature to the place and a proud institution for Oregon. Two newspapers, the Oregon State Journal and the Eugene City Guard, are published weekly.
