Lost Soldier’s Gold Mine
Read about the legendary Lost Soldier Gold Mine, a mystery that dates back to the 1850's.
Another legend, this time from 1860, about the Port Orford Meteorite, a 22,000 lb. meteorite supposedly resting near the Oregon coast in the Siskiyou National Forest. Treasure hunters and hikers still seach for this.
Japanese bomb sites
A story from our recent past: There are two sites in the continental U.S. that have been bombed by a foreign country. During World War II, a Japanese pilot dropped an incendiary bomb near Brookings, on hour south. Three weeks later, the plane dropped incendiary bombs near Port Orford. Neither bombing caused significant damage.
