Oregon's western border follows the Pacific coast. The area has long been used for fishing and hunting. In the 1800s, fur traders set up forts along the coast. Settlers started farming in the Willamette Valley, and the railroad linked them to the east by 1883. Fishing and forestry are a large part of Oregon's economy today. Oregon became a state in 1859 with Salem as its capital.
