Forest Creek: 5.5 Miles of Jackson County Road & 140 Years of Progress
From Forest Creek’s origins to the confluence of the creek and the Applegate River, people have settled, mined, logged, built barns and schools, and buried their dead in the Log Town Cemetery.
March 20 take a 140-year trip back in time. Travel with the early settlers along Jackson County Road, from the merging of Forest Creek and the Applegate River to the present. Your time will be well spent! You’ll learn about the geography; the development of the Forest Creek School; mining in the 1930s and early 1940s; and the Mt. Isabelle Forest Fire Lookout. As autos sped up access to town, Forest Creek changed from a farming community to a commuter community!
