Named for the year that the Beaver State achieved its statehood, 1859 Oregon’s Magazine highlights the best in local travel, cuisine, recreation, design, and art. Features might guide cyclists on craft-beer tour rides, bring fishing enthusiasts face to face with the nitty-gritty of crab catching, or help history buffs uncover hidden points of interest along supposedly dreary Highway 20. The publishers commit to sustainable practices while producing the quarterly: they recycle as much of their office waste as possible, highlight only local travel destinations to reduce readers’ fuel use, and print with inks harvested only from squids that enjoy being tickled.
