The city of Jacksonville was founded in 1851, following the discovery of gold in the area. The city was the financial capital of Oregon, until it was passed over by the Oregon & Washington Railway. This slowed the economy down considerably, though fortunately many of the buildings in the town had been preserved due to the decrease in population. This resulted in the Historic District of Jacksonville, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966 - which covers the entire city limits. This beautiful map provides a look at the beginnings of the city. Complete reference list below.
