The Oregon City Amtrak train Station (ORC) finally opened in April 2004 to much fanfare. True, there is not much there--just a waiting place and platform, but it is functional and is the 10-year dream of the city and region. Eventually, the city hopes to move the original SP station (which is presently used for offices) to the site to be used once again as the city's train station. The view here is looking south (actually to the southwest), as the train is heading toward its final destination of Eugene. July 2004

The End of the Oregon Trail Center is in Oregon City and is across the street from the new Amtrak station. The center is built to represent three huge covered wagons (one canvas blew off during a windstorm) and features exhibits and other attractions about the thousands of pioneers who journeyed more than 2,000 miles to come to Oregon and settle here. Since Oregon City was the territorial capital (and of most of the western USA), all land claims (and other official government business) had to be processed here.  Therefore, Oregon City has rights to the claim of  "End of the Oregon Trail."
