Survey number HABS OR-127

National Register Number: 66000950
Significance: In December 1851, two prospectors from California discovered gold on Jackson Creek, a small tributary of the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. The two, James Cluggage and James Poole, began operating placers in January 1852. By that time, the California gold rush had brought prospectors as far north as Yreka, California. When the miners from southern Oregon arrived on Yreka to re-provision, news of the Jackson Creek discovery spread quickly. According to one account, a group of Californian miners watched one of the drunken new arrivals, and after he had secured provisions, followed him back to his camp in Oregon, where "two or three others were mining on the sly. [They] went to work prospecting and found a rich creek and in a short time a thousand miners from California had overrun the whole country." A boom town soon covered the landscape with a mass of tents and shanties.
