Jacksonville Historic District
Jacksonville City Limits

Jacksonville Historic District is Oregon's most extensive and complete example of a late 19th century inland commercial and mining community.

Jacksonville is nearly unique in that its fabric, its scale and spatial relationships have survived. Commercial and public structures, churches, dwellings, door yards, fields, wooded areas and a cemetery which comprise the historic district are as yet reasonably unencroached upon.

Still standing are buildings comprehending the entire range of architectural styles built in Oregon between 1853 and 1884. Its buildings include a hotel, drug store, bank, town hall, and a court house, plus stores, saloons, lodge halls, residences and churches. These structures are built in the Greek Revival, Gothic Revival and Italianate styles that were popular on the Pacific Coast in the last half of the 19th century.

Adapted from the NRHP nomination submitted in 1966.

The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) was created on October 15, 1966, by the Historic Preservation Act. Jacksonville Historic District was listed on the NRHP the next month in November 1966. It was the first listing from Jackson County.
