Mt. Hood: View from St. Helen's Hall in Portland, Oregon

This small painting, titled "View from St. Helen's Hall, Portland, Oregon" is dated October 1880. The artist is unknown. It is believed that during President Rutherford B. Hayes' Western Trip, he acquired the painting as a souvenir. St. Helen's Hall was the oldest Episcopal school  founded west of the Rockies. Built in 1869, the school was initially located at 4th and Madison, the present site of Portland's city hall.
