I“The drive is the equal, in natural scenery, of the celebrated drive along the Hudson.”

So said Colonel John T. Grayson in 1901 of the White House Road south of Portland, Oregon.1 As early as 1888, the road was described in similarly favorable fashion. “A beautiful driveway is laid out up the Willamette about six miles, to what is known as the ‘White House.’ The road is macadamized and always kept in excellent condition, and the scenery on the river’s shore and along the sides of the hills is charming. At the ‘White House’ is a driving park, in a pleasant situation, which is well supported.”
