Southern Oregon Historical Society

Established in 1946, the Southern Oregon Historical Society’s mission is to make history come alive by collecting, preserving and sharing the stories and artifacts of our common heritage. SOHS cares for the largest artifact collection and archival repository in the state focused entirely on documenting the human experience in the Southern Oregon region. Also managed by SOHS is Hanley Farm, a 37-acre historic property that provides a look at more than a century of Rogue Valley agricultural life.
