Rogue River Ranch

The Rogue River Ranch is on the National Register of Historic Places and is nestled in the heart of the Rogue River’s wild section. Once a major Native American habitation site, the area has a rich human history of over 9,000 years. After Europeans arrived, the site became a small gold-mining community, with up to 100 residents trying to scratch a living from the gold-bearing gravel bars of the mighty Rogue River. The ranch structures remaining today represent the center of the old community, which had a trading post with upstairs lodging, a blacksmith’s shop, and numerous outbuildings that filled the early residents’ social and commercial needs.
