The Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station was established in 1888, funded by the Hatch Act of 1887, which provided funds for experiment stations at land-grant colleges in each state and territory. This photo of its first building was taken by James G. Crawford in about 1890 as part of a series of views of public buildings in the central Willamette Valley. The experiment station's first director was Edward Grimm, an agricultural chemist. Today, Oregon Agricultural College is Oregon State University. In the beginning, the experiment station consisted of this single laboratory and the college farm, 35 acres of land donated by citizens of Benton County on what is now the lower OSU campus. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
