State of Jefferson -
Counties of southern Oregon and northern California joining to form a new state named Jefferson
















Why? It comes down to lack of representation, just like it did back in 1941 when quite a few people got together and devised a plan to form a new state. That's when it was named Jefferson, after Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States.



This is a rendition of what Jefferson would have looked like in 1941 when Gilbert Gable of Port Orford, OR made the proposal to have his county leave Oregon and join California in an effort to develop the natural resources there while the country was coming out of the Great Depression and preparing for war.
