Mission Statement

The Southern Oregon Historical Society brings history alive by collecting, preserving, and sharing the stories and artifacts of our region’s past. Through its interpretive programs, collections, and publications, the Society strives to educate the public and generate an appreciation of regional history for present and future generations.


The SOHS collection represents the pride and the pain of people who have lived in the Rogue Valley. We have baskets and tools from the earliest inhabitants. We have letters and journals from the first families who arrived in wagons and on foot. We have the tools they used to dig their gardens, and the clothing they wore when they did it. We have treasures that range from the tiniest of fleas to the fanciest of fire trucks. Although we currently cannot support museum space to display the collection, our online catalog provides images and information about many of our artifacts.
