Peter Skene Ogden

Peter Skene Ogden

In 1827 Peter Skene Ogden, head of the Hudson’s Bay Company brigades combing the Snake River country, led a trapping and exploring expedition to the area that sought furs and also the location of a large river rumored to have been found there. They reached Klamath Lake in December 1826–the first adventurers to enter the heart of the Rogue country. From the Historic Resource Study, entire story here.
