Mistletoe Oaks, Bear Creek Valley

Mistletoe Oaks, Bear Creek Valley

The broad valley formed by Bear Creek became a well-traveled corridor by the middle of the 1800s, as new settlers on the Applegate Trail headed north to the Willamette Valley and gold hungry prospectors poured south to the California diggings. Originally called Stuart (or Stewart) Creek, it was named for Army Cpt. James Stuart, who became the first soldier to be killed by the local Rogue Indians in an 1851 skirmish. Stuart was buried along the banks of the creek and a short-lived fort named after him was erected near present day Phoenix.
