Gold Hill Real Estate Information

Gold Hill, Oregon is located 40 miles north of the California border between Medford and Grants Pass on Interstate Highway 5 and on the Rogue River. Gold Hill was founded in the early 1800’s by gold miners hoping to find their fortune after the discovery of a large gold nugget had been found. Many homes in the area date back into the 1800’s. The local IOOF hall was built in 1890. It and the antique store are two of the remaining brick structures that date back to this time.

The population of Gold Hill is very steady, as most of the property between the mountains and river in the area has already been developed. The population in the 2000 census was 1079 as compared with the 1990 population of 1000. Within the past two years, a few small subdivisions have been developed, but population is likely to remain the same unless the city begins development across the Rogue River.

The Gold Hill bike path connects the city with the sports park where Little League Baseball is played. This paved path is ADA compliant and provides a hard surface for roller bladders and bikes as well. The path travels along the river and is considered very scenic.

Gold Hill students attend Central Point School District 6. The district has Patrick Elementary School and Hanby Middle School in Gold Hill. Some rural students having Gold Hill addresses attend Sams Valley Elementary School. All high school students attend Crater High School, in nearby Central Point.

In mid-June each year, the Gold Historical Society sponsors Gold Dust days with a parade and street fair. This is a time of family fun for residents and visitors to Gold Hill. The Rogue River is a great place for fishing and white water rafting. Raft rentals can be found at the southerly end of town.
