I am looking to do a trek across Oregon to visit all the historical landmarks. What places are a must see?
I’d start in Baker City and move west! Good start for historical landmarks: Flickr group.

Jacksonville is a National Historic Landmark, and a wonderful place to visit. This quaint town has fabulous shops, restaurants, historic cemetery, trails and a great feel! There are more than 100 homes on the National Historic Register, and you can take audio, trolley and segway tours to check it all out!
The Oregon Caves Chateau in Cave Junction
From Baker City, follow the Barlow Road to the Philip Foster Farm. Hands-on activities for the kids. Real history for the rest of us. Great place to bring the grandchildren! Check out the hours on their website before you go.

- How did Grants Pass get its name? I’ve heard several different versions.
- We are driving to Port Orford to visit the prehistoric gardens, then to Bandon for the Wildlife Zoo and then working our way back to Tillamook. We are looking for some special sights and sounds to visit on Highway 101. We’ve been to the lighthouses on the Oregon coast but are wondering about some not so common sights.What do you recommend?
- I will be in Eugene for a meeting on Jan 14th and 15th and would like to see some of the Oregon Coast; perhaps on the previous weekend or maybe starting on Jan 10th. What area would be relatively easy to drive to from Eugene or Portland? What kind of weather should I expect? Can you suggest some B&Bs? — Lois
