While the Willamette Meteorite is listed in this photo as found in 1902, there is evidence it was well-known long before that to Native American inhabitants near Willamette, Oregon. Displayed at the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition in Portland, it was shipped to the New York Museum of Natural History, where it still resides today. It is the largest meteorite found in the United States and the sixth largest in the world. The original glass slide for this photo comes from the Lichtbeelden Instituut in Amsterdam, demonstrating the international interest in this meteorite. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
