Gold Hill is located off the I-5 between Grants Pass
and Medford Oregon. Gold Hill was founded in the early
1800's by miners looking to make it rich shortly after a
large gold nugget was found.
The town's fathers bought & sold land, traded and
homesteaded until the town is what it is today.
Gold Hill was incorporated in 1895.

The Historical Society was established on January 20,
1986 . The Gold Hill Historical Society Museum is housed
in the Beeman-Martin house, which was built by Josiah
and Hattie Beeman in 1901. Money from the Beemanís
operation of the Lucky Bart Mine built this fine Gold
Hill home which featured the first indoor plumbing in
the city. GHHS acquired this house in 1993. Many devoted
volunteers spent five months refurbishing this historic
building. The purpose of the society is to promote,
preserve and interpret the rich history of Gold Hill and
the surrounding area. The Museum hours are 12 - 4
Thursday through Saturday. Call 541-855-1182 for further
information. Volunteers are always welcome.
