Imagine what would happen if a truck full of dynamite exploded in downtown Roseburg? With the Roseburg Blast tour you don’t have to imagine, you can relive August 7, 1959 and the destruction from the explosion. The self-guided digital tour starts at the Roseburg Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center and gives you plenty of time to visit historic downtown along the way.
As you tour downtown Roseburg visit the historic Floed-Lane House and Applegate Trail historical marker at the Douglas County Courthouse. Stroll around the pedestrian friendly downtown to see more historic items, unique shops and galleries as well as the area’s first urban winery.
Art fans will want to stop at the Umpqua Valley Arts Association, a historic Veteran Soldier’s Home of 1918, now home to inspiring, local creations in a variety of mediums.
Head north to visit a few of the Land of Umpqua’s north valley wineries then continue to historic Oakland. Established in 1881, the historic brick buildings and quaint shops feel like a step back in time.
