Portland, Oregon is known as The City of Roses. Legends indicate that the name was generated when a group of visitors attended and Episcopal Church convention in 1888. The following year, the Portland Rose Society was founded. This group planted 20 miles of Portland’s streets in preparation for the centennial celebration of the Lewis and Clark expedition to the west coast of the United States. After the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, the city started an annual “Festival of Roses” and roses can be seen in many lawns and at public buildings throughout the city.
