Capital city Salem, Oregon, has a rich history and is depicted here by one of the most prolific city illustrators of the era Eli Glover. Illustrated using an eastern facing perspective with Mt Hood as a backdrop, the Capitol State Building proudly depicted as a focal point. Geographically Salem is the center of the Willamette Valley and became the capital of the Oregon territory in 1851.
This map produced in 1876 is of particular historical importance as the year marked the completion of the second state capital, which was rebuilt on the site of the previous State House. The second capitol was built with revival-style architecture and found inspiration in the nation’s capitol building.
Illustrated to highlight important regional buildings and manufacturing interests, perspective maps were not drawn to scale and typically showed the area from an oblique angle. These unique maps were intended to give the viewer a sense of place, now they provide a link to the past and instill a connection to the region’s history. Prominent businesses would display these maps with pride as they were often notated in the legend.
Outside of the city, one sees the importance of agriculture for the area with the depiction of the numerous fields and farmhouses dotting the landscape. Agriculture has always been an essential part of Salem’s domestic economy, and it’s vast production of cherries led to its nickname “Cherry City.” Salem is also bisected by the 45th parallel, the halfway point between the North Pole and the equator.
