The Columbia River Highway today is known as the "Historic Columbia River Highway", the first scenic highway constructed in the United States. The design and development were the products of Samuel Hill, lawyer and entrepreneur, and Samuel C. Lancaster, an engineer and landscape architect. Built between 1913 and 1922, the Highway was patterned after the Auxenstrasse in Swizerland. Throughout the 74-mile route from Troutdale to The Dalles, the road grades are no greater than 5 percent, and no curves have less than a 100-foot turning radius. In 1983 the "Columbia River Highway Historic District" was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (#83004168).
