A Little History…
Abigail Duniway was known as the “Grand Old Lady of Oregon” in her last few years before passing away some days before her eighty-first birthday in 1915.
Abigail Duniway was a well-renowned suffragette. She arrived in Oregon in 1852 along with her father and eight surviving siblings. Unfortunately, her mother and small brother died during the horrendous journey on the wagon train. However, she lived long enough to see women vote in Oregon. Both the Duniway Park and Duniway Schools of Portland and McMinnville honor her memory. In the Hall of Fame of “The League of Women Voters” her name is inscribed on a bronze plaque, and in World War II, a large landing craft was named for her. She is mentioned often in many books on women’s rights, in which where her achievements are best described.
