Eugene history

Eugene is named after its founder, Eugene Franklin Skinner. In 1846, Skinner erected the first cabin in what is now known as Eugene. It was used as a trading post and was dubbed as a post office in 1850. Skinner founded Eugene in 1862.

Cultural attractions in Eugene include the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, resident ballet, theater, opera and symphony, Bach Festival, Historic District, walking tours, 23 art galleries and museums, the Willamette Science and Technology Center (now called "The Science factory), and the Festival of Musical Theater. The Three Sisters Wilderness and The Oregon Dunes are just a short drive away. Local events include: Eugene Celebration, Lane County Fair, Asian Celebration, and the Oregon Country Fair.

Eugene is often called Track City, USA by athletes because of its track and field history. Shoe giant Nike, Inc. was founded in Eugene, and the city is home to the University of Oregon's Hayward Field, which hosts numerous collegiate and amateur track and field meets throughout the year — notably the Prefontaine Classic and, recently, the 2004 Junior Olympics. Eugene currently has one of the highest unemployment rates for a city in the entire nation (6.4% as of July 2004. 257 out of 331 for all U.S.MSAs).
