Klamath Falls

Klamath Falls, originally named Linkville, was incorporated in 1905 when access was either by horse or stagecoach. When the railroad arrived in 1909, the town experienced its first building boom, giving rise to today’s turn of the 20th-century downtown. The original wooden buildings were replaced by brick and stone structures and ultimately Klamath Falls expanded into the surrounding hills towards the railroad tracks.

Downtown Walking Tour and Mural Trail

Experience the variety of early 1900’s Gothic Revival architecture and murals  depicting the history of the Klamath Basin and surrounding area. In addition to the historic murals, you may notice that a new wave of urban public art is underfoot, perfect for Instagrammable moments. Highlights of the tour include the Fred Goeller House, built from a mail-order design and Pelicans on Parade, featuring over a dozen 7 foot high pelicans painted to celebrate the city’s centennial. There are also a half dozen birds at the Visitor Center.  Colorfully painted featuring local birds and the Klamath Piano Project, donated pianos painted by local artists and placed in outdoor areas throughout downtown Klamath Falls, are also featured downtown.

The tour of downtown Klamath Falls can begin on either end of Main Street with the Discover Klamath Visitor Center, 205 Riverside Dr. Suite B on one end, and the Klamath County Museum, 1451 Main Street, on the other.

Baldwin Hotel Museum

Constructed in 1905 as the centerpiece hotel of downtown Klamath Falls, the Baldwin Hotel Museum now features 40 rooms filled with antiques and artifacts.

Originally built as a hardware store, the building was converted into a hotel in 1911 that was to be located right across the street from the railroad, when George Baldwin sought to profit from the coming of the railroad. Unfortunately, the railroad was built at the other end of Main Street. Nonetheless, thanks to the hotel’s very unique characteristics of almost all rooms connected in order to create the ability to rent out either one room or an entire suite of rooms, the hotel thrived.

Named after the abundant tules, or bulrush, that grow along the shallow shoreline of Tule Lake, the city of Tulelake was established in 1937 as a place for those working on the development of nearby Klamath and Tule Lake Basin farm ground. After World War II, a land lottery was held for Veterans to begin cultivating potatoes, onions, grains, and other produce, which drew local businesses, farmers, and their families. Today, the town is still an agricultural community and attracts duck and geese hunters and tourists in search of scenery and wildlife.

Tulelake-Butte Valley Fairgrounds and History Museum

On view at this museum of local history are interpretive displays and exhibitions on Modoc history, the geological and agricultural history of the Klamath Basin, homesteading and settlement of the Tulelake Basin area, the Civilian Conservation Corps., and the history of Japanese American incarceration at the nearby segregation center. A one-hour audiotape tour of the museum is available. The gift shop features local history books and regional treats like jams, horseradish, and other souvenirs.

Tule Lake National Monument

The Tule Lake National Monument brings increased understanding of the high price paid by some Americans during the second World War. There are two sites of historical importance within this National Monument. First, the Tule Lake Segregation Center, the largest and most controversial of the ten concentration camps constructed in 1942 by the United States government to incarcerate Japanese Americans during World War II. The second site is Camp Tulelake, a former Civilian Conservation Corps camp that first imprisoned Japanese Americans and later detained German and Italian prisoners of war until it closed in 1946. The public cannot access the camp unless on a guided tour, but several buildings can be viewed from the road.

800 Main St. Tulelake, CA 96134, 530-260-0537. The Tule Lake National Monument currently uses the Fairgrounds Museum as its temporary visitor center, open Th-M 9AM-5PM, with Ranger-led tours every Saturday, between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Lava Beds National Monument

This National Monument pays homage to the geological and historical turmoil this part of the country has experienced over the past half-million years. Thanks to volcanic eruptions on the Medicine Lake shield volcano, the landscape is rugged, dotted with diverse volcanic features, and home to more than 800 caves strewn about the high desert wilderness. Explore Native American history through rock art and archeological sites like Petroglyph Point, learn about the Modoc War of 1872-73, and discover the colorful characters that populated this area like early cave explorer J.D. Howard and Prohibition-era moonshiners who set up stills in the remote caves. Highlights of Lava Bed National Monument include Symbol Bridge and Big Painted Cave, Hidden Valley and Mammoth Crater, and Captain Jack’s Stronghold, the fortress of lava rock where the Modoc Indians made a stand for their homeland and refused to be relocated to a reservation.

The town of Macdoel was started in 1906 by the Butte Valley Congregation of the Church of the Brethren and named for W.H. McDole, the first land company president. When the post office was established in 1907, the postal department, either in error or by design, changed the name to Macdoel.

Butte Valley National Grassland

With sweeping views of the Cascade Range and Mt. Shasta, this is the only national grassland in California. The area attracted homesteaders in the late 19th century, but overuse of the land and a drought in the 1930’s caused a decline in productivity. The U.S. government planted over 4,000 acres of wheatgrass in an attempt to restore the land and now, songbirds, raptors, waterfowl, pronghorn antelope, mule deer, and coyote dwell within the protected borders. This is also a great place for birdwatching.

Step back in time with a walk down McCloud’s Main Street, where most of the buildings were constructed in the late 1800’s and retain much of their original grandeur to this day. The town is thought to be named after Alexander Roderick McLeod, who led a group of Hudson Bay Company trappers to the area in 1829. Not long after, the railroad made it possible to transport lumber to more populated cities and McCloud became a company town, owned by the McCloud River Lumber Company.

McArthur Burney Falls Memorial State Park

This 910-acre park offers swimming, fishing, and excellent hiking trails, but its centerpiece is the 129-foot Burney Falls, named after Samuel Burney, who lived in the area in the 1850’s. Hundreds of tiny springs seep directly out of the rock behind twin falls that thunder down into an iridescent pool underneath, creating a 250-foot wide veil of water – truly a sight to see! The Falls were called the “eighth wonder of the world” by President Theodore Roosevelt and declared a National Natural Landmark in 1984.

Known as “The Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno has been beckoning chance-takers for decades with its clanging slot machines and bright neon lights. Named after Civil War Union Major General Jesse L. Reno, the city was settled by pioneers in the mid-1850’s but the discovery of silver in 1859 led to a mining rush and population boom. The railroad soon followed and Reno grew as the principal settlement between Salt Lake City and Sacramento. But it was the state’s legalization of gambling in 1931 that put Reno on the map as one of the most popular vacation spots in the country. Today, the city is an entertainment destination, technology hub, and thanks to its proximity to Lake Tahoe, a haven for outdoor adventure enthusiasts.
