Photograph showing a horse-drawn Concord stagecoach with the words “Old Oregon Trail” on the side. The coach was carrying President Warren G. Harding and First Lady Florence Harding during a parade from the train station in Meacham, Oregon, on July 3, 1923. Also in the coach were Oregon Governor Walter M. Pierce and Washington Governor Louis F. Hart. The Hardings’ visit was part of a trip across the nation, which included a stop in Meacham to participate in events commemorating the anniversary of the first wagon train crossing of the Blue Mountains. The commemoration included an address by the president, the dedication of the old Oregon Trail, and a pageant depicting people and events in the history of whites’ arrival and settlement. The Oregon Journal published a story about the Meacham visit, headlined “President Dedicates Oregon Trail in Midst of Colorful Setting,” on the front page of the July 3, 1923 edition.
