Quick Description: The Oregon/California border on U.S. Hwy. 101 south of Brookings, Oregon.
Location: Oregon, United States
Date Posted: 12/22/2009 2:17:23 PM
Waymark Code: WM7YD7
On the east side of the highway, Oregon has turnout and landscaped area with nice “Welcome to Oregon” and “Oregon Thanks You Come Back Soon” signs. On the west side there is a simple “Welcome to California” sign.
Oregon has a new welcome center (2008) in Crissey Field State Park which can be accessed about 0.15 miles to the north. California has an agriculturel inspections station about a third of a mile to the south.
The Oregon/California border was designated at the 42th parallel when Oregon and California became states. The surveys to establish the border had errors in them so the actual border can be several tenths of a mile north or south of the 42th parallel. At this crossing point the border is actually about 0.1 miles south of the 42th parallel.
