Research into the history of the Portland
Seed Company has just been started. We have only been able to
procure two old seed catalogs. If anyone has additional information
or historical items to donated to the library and archive, please
company was established in 1892. In the 1929 seed annual they were
claiming to be "The Premier Seed House of the Northwest."
Note: Special thanks to Sally Donovan and
Bruce Howard for send us a Portland Seed Company seed bag. They
found it in 2007 in the basement framing of a circa 1892 house in downtown
The Dalles, Oregon.
