This exhibit contains 48 original lithographs from the U.S. Pacific Railroad Survey Reports (1850), curated by Lee Silliman. The artworks are by John Mix Stanley, John J. Young, and John H. Richard. This exhibit presents a series of original tinted lithographs illuminating the natural features of the Cascade Range and its transecting Columbia River, as recorded by two exploration survey parties seeking viable transcontinental railroad routes prior to the Civil War. Featured are early landscape views augmented by botanical and zoological images of indigenous trees, birds, fish, and reptiles encountered in these riverine and alpine environments.
