“Victorian Days”

The 2nd half of he 19th Century saw major changes in transportation, medical practices, fashion, household conveniences, jobs, and more as the Industrial Revolution’s inventions and innovations changed everyone’s lifestyle. 

In 2024 you can again view different aspects of life in the late 1800s through the lens of the gold mining town of Jacksonville, Oregon, and the Beekman family, the town’s most prominent and wealthiest pioneers!

These popular tours at Jacksonville’s historic 1870s C.C. Beekman House Museum look at the dramatic changes in life during the late 1800s Industrial Revolution along with the lingering social expectations that continued to influence adoption of these changes.   

The Museum is located at 470 E. California Street.
