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.
