Images Of Reedsport

Co-Authors: Jim Akre, Umpqua Discovery Center, & Douglas County Museum
Incorporated in 1919, Reedsport began as a railroad town built on stilts to avoid the low-lying marsh and slough that ran beneath the town.  This area was filled in 1927, and Reedsport became the hub of activity on the Lower Umpqua River.
