Living in Jacksonville Oregon - EVERYTHING You Need to Know
What is Living in Jacksonville Oregon Like?
Jacksonville is a city in Jackson County, Oregon, United States, approximately 5 miles (8 km) west of Medford. It was named for Jackson Creek, which flows through the community and was the site of one of the first placer gold claims in the area. It includes Jacksonville Historic District, designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1966. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 2,785, up from 2,235 at the 2000 census. Jacksonville was founded following the discovery of gold deposits in 1851–1852. With the creation of Jackson County, it became the county seat, a role that was transferred to nearby Medford in 1927.
Jacksonville attracts visitors who learn its rich Gold Mining history through The Jacksonville Museum and Children's Museum, which will once again house much of Peter Britt's photography of the founding families and Jacksonville past, as well as his photography equipment. Currently, these collections can be seen at The History Center at 106 N. Central in Medford.
The Britt Music Festival draws headlining entertainment to Jacksonville for beautiful concerts under the stars all summer. The Jacksonville Cemetery, with its weathered grave markers, tells its own story of those who built Jacksonville and made it their home. Jacksonville is a celebration not only of history but of nature, art, music, food, wine, and most importantly, family and relationships. The streets may hide hidden mysteries in the mineshafts below, but the town's foundations have never changed.
