Grants Pass Oregon Attractions

City Historic Tours
Take a guided walking tour of historic Grants Pass and share its colorful history. The Josephine County Historical Society is housed in the historic Schmidt House at the corner of 5th and "J" streets. The house contains many interesting collections of books, photos and maps. The reading and conference rooms of their research library are open from 10am to 4pm, Tuesday-Friday.

Grants Pass Museum of Art
229 SW 'G' St., Grants Pass, Oregon, phone: 541-479-3290
Visit the Grants Pass Museum of Art, the city's primary resource for exhibitions and collections of fine art for more than 24 years. Located in the heart of the historic old town, our galleries offer opportunities for learning, introspection and connection with cultures from around the world. Please browse our site, and when in town, come visit the museum.

Josephine County Historical Society Museum
508 SW Fifth St., Grants Pass, Oregon, phone: 541-479-7827
In May of 1960, the Josephine County Historical Society became a non-profit organization to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret local history. The Society moved it's library collection in 1972 from Kerbyville to a temporary space in Grants Pass until 1982 when the house gifted by Anna and Flora Schmidt became the society's headquarters, research library, and house museum. In 1997, the Research Library was settled into a relocated house donated by the Ken Roberts Company and renovated with generous help from the community. Both facilities are situated on Southwest 5th Street; the House Museum is on the corner of 5th and "J" Streets and the Research Library is next door on the corner of 5th and "K" Streets, a few short blocks from the "G" Street Historical District.

Scenic Applegate Valley Tour
This 40-mile tour takes you through Grants Pass and the quaint communities of Applegate, Ruch and Murphy. Wine tasting is available at Valley View Winery near Ruch. Jacksonville, known for being a National Landmark City, features over 85 historic buildings and homes. This route takes you back through the countryside and rejoins Interstate 5 at Central Point (Exit 32). Estimated travel time: 3 hours.

Valley of the Rogue State Park
A pleasant green oasis awaits you in southern Oregon's Rogue Valley. Valley of the Rogue Park has both a day-use picnic area and an overnight campground along three miles of shoreline on the Rogue River. A meeting hall is available for groups. An easy, self-guided interpretive walking trail provides a relaxing 1.25 mile stroll along the river's edge.

Wolf Creek Inn State Heritage Site
Imagine yourself as a traveler along a section of the Applegate Trail in the late 1800s. You have just arrived by stage coach at the Wolf Creek Inn. This is a long-sought-after refuge from a not-so-comfortable portage over mountains and across valleys. After paying 75 cents for a room, bath, and meals, you’re ready to relax. You sit down to a good meal and some easy conversation with the innkeepers. Afterward, the men sidle off to the tap room for some quaffs of beer while the ladies adjourn to the parlor. The conversation drifts from tales of inspirational beauty to frightful experiences of the trail.
