State of Oregon - Jacksonville, Jackson County

Jacksonville, Jackson County, PO, Incorporated city of 800 inhabitants, and County seat, the principal town of Southern Oregon, is situated on Jackson Creek, a tributary of Rogue River, and is the center of trade of that noble valley. Gold was found here in 1850, largely remunerating the labor of its extraction, and, as a consequence, a large and busy place was built up. The mines of this section of the state are of a permanent character, and this, added to the great agricultural capacity of the surrounding country, as well as the fact of its being on the stage .and chiefly traveled route between California and Oregon, have continued its prosperity. Quartz mining is attracting the attention of capitalists much more than formerly, and gold and silver bearing ledges of great value nave been found in various parts of the county. These being of recent discovery are but little developed, but great worth is claimed for them. Veins of copper and magnetic iron also exist, but await development. The institutions of learning are of a high character, and both private and public schools are well maintained. Church organizations of the various religious societies are established, and fine church edifices adorn the town. Two weekly newspapers, the Oregon Sentinel and Democratic Times, are published, and schools and churches may be taken as the best evidences of the cultivation and refinement of the people.
