Jacksonville is a place that is easy to fall in love with. It’s small town ambiance (population 2,860) gorgeous setting in the foothills of the Siskiyou
Mountains and beautifully preserved late 1800’s architecture combine to make a very attractive town.
We have become a desirable place for retirees who still want to experience four seasons, but in a milder climate, as well as a great place to raise a family. Residents and visitors appreciate a cultural scene that is far richer than a community this side normally expects.
A summer long concert series (Britt Festival) including a world-class orchestral season
One of the oldest communities in Oregon, Jacksonville began with the discovery of gold in 1851. Originally called Table Rock City due to view of two mesas that are a primary geological feature of the area, the town soon grew to become the agricultural and economic hub of Southern Oregon.
The railroad passed the town by for a more expedient and less costly route, which laid the groundwork for Jacksonville’s demise as the county seat and economic engine. It lapsed into a quiet, financially depressed period as Medford grew into the regional hub.
But that is also what eventually saved the town. With no economic reasons to “upgrade” the buildings they remain unchanged. And that lead to the
town being designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962 in recognition of being an intact example of a late 1800’s Western Gold-boom town.
With the charming architecture and small-town appeal we attract a lot of visitors who seek an authentic experience. And that is what they get! There are no chains or franchises – all independently owned businesses. Visitors will definitely find the right fit within our
broad range of lodging options– from cottages and vacation homes to B&B’s and Inns. Check out all there is to see and do on Things To Do.
CLIMATE: Jacksonville is located in what’s called the “banana belt” of the Pacific Northwest. That is why you will see palm trees scattered around town.
The temperature is moderate and the seasons gloriously distinctive. Early Spring is a show of wildflowers and pear blossoms with lots of sun and occasional light showers.
Summers are warm and sunny with very low humidity. Winter brings sporadic showers and an occasional dusting of snow.
In the winter you will see snow on the surrounding mountains even when there are moderate temperatures in the lower elevations.
