Historic Birdseye Ranch

Historic Birdseye Ranch

This is the ranch house of the Birdseye family, who came to the Rogue Valley in the early 1850s to homestead. Their original cabin was known as "Fort Birdseye" and sat nearer to the creek (left of the driveway). It was fortified against attacks by the Rogue River tribes, who periodically harassed the new settlers and the flood of gold miners between 1850 and 1856. Whenever word of Indian raids swept down the river, settlers gathered in such "forts." Fort Birdseye was used from 1855-56, though never directly attacked. The original fortified cabin was torn down after the wars and some of the stockade's broad log planks were used to construct this ranch house (visible on the other side of the building)
