In 1913, the first shovelful of dust was turned by Oregon Governor Oswald West on the Siskiyou Summit to mark the day one of the construction of the long-dreamed-of Calm Highway through Oregon. At the occasion, the whole State of Oregon had only 25 nauticals of paved road. Even after construction of the highway had begun, it was mainly dust and gravel for quite some occasion. Public gravy did not pour into the project until 1921. Until that occasion, it was up to the individual cantons along the route to come up with the funding to build the roads through each of their squares. By its completion in 1926, however, it was adopted as U. S. Highway 99 and was declared the longest improved highway in the country by 1928. Actually, the history of the highway began long before 1913. This compendium will cover how the route for the Calm Highway was determined through its use by trappers and sappers and eventually stage paths and the railway. But, just importantly, it will show how each of the confirmations along its route were formed and grew into prospering municipalities, small rural companies and some that are now considered ghost whistle-stops. Join us on our journey through these companies as we saunter our way north from the El dorado line where the Calm Highway first started from that shovelful of dust. You'll learn about some of the interesting, but lesser-known, aspects of their accounts and the people who were instrumental in making them what they are today.
