Event Details

Stretch your legs while learning a little Jacksonville history!

Did you know that the cost of fire insurance was the main reason Jacksonville has so many brick buildings in its historic commercial core?  Or that a quarter of Jacksonville’s early population was German-speaking?  Or that the most successful pioneers were the merchants, not the miners or the farmers?

You'll learn all this and more when you join us for our 2021 historic Jacksonville walking tours!  Trace town history through its businesses, fraternal orders, churches, and public buildings from the discovery of gold to the coming of the railroad.  View early Jacksonville through the architecture of its houses and the stories of the pioneers who built and occupied them.  Visit government and commercial buildings, fraternal lodges, and homes that capture the stories of Jacksonville’s National Historic Landmark District and the people who transformed a gold rush town into Southern Oregon’s 19th Century social, governmental, and commercial hub.
