The Infamous Black Bird Southern Oregon History, Revised

Jackson County Business Directory 1878

    Situated on the line of the O.&C. Stage Co., 115 miles south of Roseburg and 315 miles from Portland. Although as yet but a small town of 600 inhabitants, it is rapidly increasing and bids fair to become one of the most important manufacturing points in Oregon. Already there are established here a woolen mill, with four large looms and three knitting machines, a furniture and sash factory, a foundry and machine shop, two sawmills and a large flouring mill, also a soap factory. The power for the above is furnished by the Ashland Creek, which is capable of turning many more wheels besides. The situation of the town is pretty and the climate excellent.
