The Douglas County Museum was designed by the San Francisco architectural firm of Backen, Arrigoni & Ross and built in 1969. The design received a National Award of Merit from the American Institute of Architects. Major additions were completed in 1979 and 1989 to expand both exhibition space and onsite storage facilities. In 2006 the Umpqua River Lighthouse and Museum joined forces with DCM to improve the visitor experience at both sites.<\/p>\r\n

The purpose of the Museum is to “collect, preserve, interpret and exhibit materials related to the history and natural history of Douglas County\". Visitors can expect to experience professional, creative depictions of historical figures and events representing the Umpqua Valley. The rich history our area provides gives the Museum opportunities to exhibit more than ten thousand years of natural and cultural history through detailed dioramas and topical exhibits. The natural history dioramas house native wildlife in richly depicted habitats from the crest of the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean.<\/p>\r\n

The museum facility contains thousands of square feet of exhibit galleries, storage areas, library, photo laboratory, auditorium, gift shop and research facilities<\/p>","post_name":"douglas-county-museum-of-natural-cultural-history","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"43.1941","lng":"-123.361","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/hertitage-museum\/douglas-county-museum-of-natural-cultural-history\/"},{"ID":"454456","post_title":"Winchester Fish Ladder","post_content":"

The Butte Creek Mill and General Store is still one of Southern Oregon’s favorite destinations today as people come to take home the whole grain goodness of mills flours baking mixes and many culinary treats along with a whole lot of history.

The mill began operation in 1872, built by the pioneers with double-bitted axes and hand saws felled trees that were already more than one hundred years old. Foundation pillars nearly two feet square, were hewn with broad axes; the beams were morticed together and secured to one another with hardwood pegs; boards for the walls were whipsawed from logs and nailed on with hand made square nails. The mill consists of a basement and three floors.<\/p>","post_name":"historic-butte-creek-mill","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"42.4744","lng":"-122.798","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/hertitage-museum\/historic-butte-creek-mill\/"},{"ID":"3158154","post_title":"Rogue Valley ZipLine Adventure","post_content":"
