Woodville Museum – Rogue River, Oregon

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 80 miles from Winston to Wimer, Oregon.

 

Today’s subject…

 

Along the way I stopped at the Woodville Museum in Rogue River, Oregon. Rouge River was originally named Tailholt.

 

The Tailholt Legend…

In the early days, gold seekers forded the Rogue River, often swimming across by holding onto the tail of their horse.

 

Woodville: In 1872, John Woods built the first framed house in the area. It served as a stage stop, post office and rooming house. Soon there emerged a thriving community commonly called “Woodville”.

 

Rogue River: It wasn’t until 1912 that the community was incorporated as a city and officially named Rogue River.

 

Here are some of the photos that I took along the way yesterday…

Most of yesterday’s drive was on Interstate Highway through the mountains of Southern Oregon…

I’ve stopped in Rogue River a number of times in recent years, yet have never shown you the river. The first photo is the bridge crossing the river looking south…

After finishing my business in Rogue River, I drove the 13 miles to Mary’s home in Wimer. She asked me to pick up a rug and bring it to her home in Murphys, California…where I’ll arrive in several days.

There is no Internet signal at Mary’s place. Had to wait until I got back into Rogue River to publish this late blog posting.

 

 

 

I’ll depart here later this morning.

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos!

Yesterday was cloudy with some rain and 47 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with a shower and 57 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
