Gold Beach

Gold BeachGold Beach was originally named Ellensburg in the 1850s, but later took the name Gold Beach after a beach near the mouth of the Rogue River where hundreds of placer mines extracted gold.

The Rogue River mailboats based in Gold Beach have been delivering mail upstream to Agness since 1895 and are only one of only two rural mailboat routes remaining in the U.S.

Although Gold Beach had been a community since the middle of the 19th century, and the county seat since 1859, its current incorporation charter only dates to 1945.
