Spring in Historic Jacksonville
Hints of spring are emerging in Jacksonville. The daffodils are blooming, the trees are budding, and deer have resumed their neighborhood strolls. What a lovely time to meander through historic neighborhoods, peruse the shops, and restore yourself with good food and wine.
Have you walked the Woodland Trails in the spring? The wildflowers will soon begin to carpet the forest floor. We are once again anticipating the upcoming sightings of Jacksonville’s very own rare and remarkable Fritillaria gentneri, a flower found only in this part of Southern Oregon; the greatest concentration being in the Jacksonville Woodlands. We have other exciting things afoot this spring: new wine and dining establishments are opening and the Britt Festival kick-off event Taste of Summer will be held downtown on June 6.
Now that the days are lengthening the sun spins a golden glow in our pristine valley. Come for the day, stay for the night. Whatever your pleasure, you’re sure to be enchanted by Jacksonville.
Nestled among rolling hillsides of evergreens, at the entrance to the Applegate Valley Wine Country, lies the historic town Jacksonville.
Having preserved its gold rush roots from the 1800s, it is one of few towns able to boast its designation as a National Historic Landmark. Take in a little of our history by strolling the old cemetery, or riding the trolley to view the many historic homes and landmarks.
The quaint brick and wooden buildings now house an eclectic mix of shops, plentiful restaurants, spas, and unique lodging— not to mention fantastic wineries dotted along the valley. The Woodlands Trail System offers you a chance to take in the scenery, learn some history, and enjoy our fresh air.
Jacksonville will dazzle and surprise you with our amazing selection of the best of what you love.
