Located in Oregon City, OR USA, imperfecta is housed in the 1910 annex of the historical Myers Building (1864)


Oregon City is often mentioned in US history classes, because it was the final stop of the Oregon Trail,  a 2,170-mile (3,490 km) east–west, large-wheeled wagon route and emigrant trail in the United States that connected the Missouri River to valleys in Oregon. More details about Oregon City's history is well summarized here.


The land onto which imperfecta has the privilege to operate from rests on the traditional homeland of the Clowwewalla (also known as the Charcowah), Cashhooks and the Molalla people, who had a robust fishing trade in this region. We respectfully acknowledge this land and are deeply grateful for the Clowwewalla, Cashhooks and the Molalla people, who have stewarded this land throughout the generations. We pay our respect to elders - past, present and emerging - for their continuing culture and the contributions they make - now and in the past - to the life of the community we are fortunate to be part of.

We encourage our patrons to learn more about the land they have the privilege to inhabit. This map is an excellent resource to start with.
