Photograph showing President Warren G. Harding (second from left), First Lady Florence Harding, and Oregon Governor Walter M. Pierce (far right) with a group of unidentified people in Meacham, Oregon, on July 3, 1923. The president and first lady are looking at documents the president is holding. The Hardings’ visit was part of a trip across the nation, which included a stop in Meacham to participate in events commemorating the anniversary of the first wagon train crossing of the Blue Mountains. The commemoration included an address by the president, the dedication of the old Oregon Trail, and a pageant depicting people and events in the history of whites’ arrival and settlement. This photograph was probably taken on the reviewing stand. The Oregon Journal published a story about the Meacham visit, headlined “President Dedicates Oregon Trail in Midst of Colorful Setting,” on the front page of the July 3, 1923 edition.
