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 Beeman's 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.
