A gold rush in 1852 brought the first settlers to the area we now know as Josephine County. Prior to the discovery of gold, it was a main thoroughfare for the hunters and trappers of the Hudson’s Bay Co. By 1865, a post office had been established in Grants Pass, and the population was growing due to the unique climate along the scenic Rogue River. Josephine County offers residents hot, dry summers with plenty of clear sunny skies, and very mild winters. Today, that makes it an ideal place to retire. In fact, Cave Junction is known as a haven for retirees—where affordable land is plentiful. Build your custom forever home in Josephine County and enjoy year-round outdoor pursuits, the wonder of the Oregon Caves National Monument, and the breathtaking scenery of the Rogue River. Whether you buy property in Redwood, New Hope, Grants Pass, or Cave Junction, you’ll be enchanted by the singular beauty of Josephine County, and her supportive, close-knit communities.
