Buncom Historical Society

Nestled among the pines in a corner of Southern Oregon’s Applegate Valley, the ghost town of Buncom provides a look back into the past, to the days when gold miners swarmed the hills, to the loggers who matched their hand-held saws against the mighty forests, to the ranchers and farmers who brought stability and a sense of home. Today, the memory of Buncom past – of the strong, able and self-sufficient people who populated it – is a quiet reminder of the importance of neighbors and community.
