The Evening Telegram was started in 1877. It was undertaken by an association of printers and was helped by the proprietors of the Oregonian. This arrangement lasted not much more than a year, when the printers who had engaged in it decided to go no further. The proprietors of the Oregonian there upon took up the paper and published it until it folded in 1930.
The Colonial Revival Telegram Building is located at 1101 SW Washington Street, Portland, Oregon. The building with its signature clock tower, was built in 1922 by Grace Rassmussen Company to house the city's Evening Telegram newspaper until the business folded eight years later. The clock tower has been restored to working condition and topped with a copper dome. The building is listed with National Register of Historic Places.
