Behind the Counter tours at Beek...
Jul 20 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Experience how Cornelius Beekman, Jacksonville’s most prominent pioneer, conducted banking in the late 1800s when Historic Jacksonville again opens the 1863 Beekman Bank, the oldest bank in the Pacific Northwest, for special “Behind the Counter” tours from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day in 2017. Between 11 am and 4 pm on Fridays through Mondays, costumed docents will share stories of late 19th Century banking practices, gold shipping, and handshake deals. Over $10 million in gold crossed the bank’s counters during Jacksonville’s heyday in the second half of the 19th Century (worth over $1 billion today). Location:  California and North 3rd Streets in Jacksonville.  It has been preserved intact as a museum since Cornelius Beekman closed the doors in 1915. A suggested bank “deposit” of $2 will help us maintain this program and expand “banking hours.” Private group tours are also available.  For additional information, contact Historic Jacksonville at 541-245-3650 or e-mail info@historicjacksonville.org. http://www.historicjacksonville.org/events/behind-the-counter-tours/

7:00 pm Haunted History Walking Tours
Haunted History Walking Tours
Jul 20 @ 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Hear more about Jacksonville’s “restless” former residents when Historic Jacksonville offers two different 1-hour “Haunted History” walking tours the 1st and 3rd Friday night of each month from June through September, plus special October tours.  Costumed tour guides share both history and tales of pioneers whose spirits still dwell in many of our historic buildings. These tours are not your typical ‘ghost tours’ with special effects.   They are history tours about real hauntings resulting from past events.  The stories—some scary, some benign—come from multiple sources, from people who have experienced these lingering spirits.  They are our attempt to recognize and honor these restless souls. Both tours feature haunted houses. The 7:00 pm Courthouse route shares tales of brothels, epidemics and hangings. The 7:30 pm Britt Hill route includes stories of arson, saloons and Oregon’s first Chinatown. October tours begin at 6pm, 6:15pm, 6:30pm, 6:45pm and 7pm on both Friday, October 12, and Saturday, October 13.  Friday night tours feature the Britt Hill route; Saturday night tours follow the Courthouse route. Tour group size is limited!  Cost is $5 per person and reservations are strongly suggested.  Contact 541-245-3650 or info@historicjacksonville.org.   “Walk ups” will be accommodated based on space available. Private tours can also be scheduled for a minimum of 10....
