LONG-LEGGED BEASTIES....


Check out our Haunted History walking tours on Friday, June 10.  Costumed docents share the tales of woe, sorrow, and regret of the spirits lingering in Jacksonville’s historic buildings.  And all the stories are TRUE!  We have learned them from people who have actually seen or experienced these ghosts!

Did you know that Coca Cola was initially marketed as a brain tonic, since its original cocaine based formula was a “stimulant”?  Or that Lydian Pinkham’s, that popular Victorian nerve tonic, was heavy on opium?

Join us on Saturday, June 18, for Victorian Medical Practices tours at Jacksonville’s historic Beekman House Museum.  Doctors lacked formal medical education; hospitals were virtually non-existent; narcotics, alcohol, and poisons were the base of most medicines; and the “cure” was often worse than the cause!

WALK 
THROUGH HISTORY


When you’re ready to stretch your legs, take one of our Saturday morning Walk through History tours. Visit the sites and hear the stories of the people who transformed a gold rush town into Southern Oregon's 19th Century governmental, social, and commercial hub.

"BEHIND THE COUNTER"
TOURS


Every weekend this summer you can Step Behind the Counter of the Beekman Bank Museum, the oldest financial institution in the Pacific Northwest.  
Begun as a gold dust office in 1856, it saw over $40 million in gold cross its counters during Jacksonville’s 19th Century heyday—worth over $1 billion today.  It’s been preserved as a museum since 1915. 
It's a full summer of activities!
In the meantime, follow us on Facebook (historicjville.org) and Instagram (historicjacksonville) for daily snippets of local history.  There's History Trivia Tuesday and Walkabout Wednesday (with our favorite Great Dane, Storm Large).  Then who knows what odd facts may show up on  “Miscellaneous Monday” or what strange gadgets and inventions might appear on “Thingamabob Thursday” or what new information we have stumbled across on “Follow Up Friday.”  Find out how interesting and fun history can be!
