About Jacksonville Oregon
Where Wine, Culture, and Beauty Get Together!
Jacksonville is nestled in the Siskyou Mountain foothills along the Rogue River Valley and is easy to fall in love with. Our little town is an unexpected nexus for wine tasting, scenic recreating, world-class music and tasty eating. We are the Heart of Rogue Valley wine country which includes the Applegate Valley Wine Trail. Though sometimes busy the small town ambiance (population 2,860) gorgeous setting and beautifully preserved late 1800’s architecture combines to make a very attractive town.
We are also a springboard for trips to nearby Crater Lake and Oregon Caves, Britt Music & Art Festival, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and several regional theaters. Inspired by our incredibly beautiful surroundings, the cultural scene is on fire. Find live music performances nearly every day of the week and a broad array of visual art in many different media.
Small and sophisticated, Jacksonville radiates both romance and rugged adventure. With miles and miles of hiking, biking, and wilderness offset by amazing Victorian-era architecture, incredible history, as well as a firm belief that even historic places have to keep making history.
Our little gem of a town is highly walkable and has at least one of everything – except chain stores. Everything from wine to cheese to chocolate, art and fine dining.
We have become a desirable place for travelers in addition to retirees who still want to experience four seasons, but in a milder climate; it’s also a great place to raise a family. Residents and visitors alike appreciate the cultural scene that is far richer than a community this size normally expects. Some top activites and attractions include:
