National Register of Historic Places in Josephine County
A marker by the main door reads:
Wolf Creek Tavern
The tavern is considered representative of the stage coach inns and hostelries associated with the early roads and trails of Oregon. Built between 1868 and 1873, it served as a way station for stages traveling the California Stage Company's Portland to Sacramento line.
The Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department acquired the tavern in 1975. Restoration, reflecting its character and evolution as a wayside inn from the 1870's to the present, began in 1977 and Wolf Creek Tavern reopened in 1979.
The historically furnished guest chambers are available as well as satisfying food and drink. We invite you to rest here as people have for generations, and enjoy the Wolf Creek Tavern's renewed hospitality and charm.
