Kerbyville Historical Museum
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

A hidden treasure, the Kerbyville Museum is the only history museum in Josephine County. The main museum explores Native Americana (the Takelma Tribe), local gold mining history, and the pioneer settlement of the Illinois Valley. Other buildings include the 1880 Naucke House, a blacksmith shop, Native American pit house, and miner’s cabin. A special exhibit, “Seeing the Dragon – American in the Vietnam War – 1958 to 1975,” is in place through summer of 2012. Visit us and touch the lives of those who have gone before. Call for hours and price information.
