The Oregon State Building was located on the grounds of the San Francisco Panama-Pacific International Exposition;

The Oregon State Building was known as the "Rustic Parthenon," as it was a peripteral temple supported by unpeeled logs; Architect and historian Richard Ellison Ritz noted that the Oregon State Building "...constructed of logs [was] similar to Portland's Forestry Building at the Lewis and Clark Exposition." (See Richard Ellison Ritz, Architects of Oregon, [Portland, OR: Lair Hill Publishing, 2002, p, 136.) The pavilion was awarded a prize for architecture by exposition officials.
