This is the Lighthouse Keeper's house at Heceta Head 

This is Multnomah Falls which is  located on the south bank of the Columbia River.  The water fall drops in two parts, the top is a 542 foot plunge, and the bottom falls an additional 69 feet.

This photo was taken from near the top of Bohemia mountain facing west. The name Bohemia was the nick name of James Johnson the man who discovered the gold.

This is the Cape Creek bridge and bay.  The photo was taken from the Heceta Head Lighthouse.

This is the stamping 

mill purchased by Joseph Knott in 1870.  It was the first operation to start

 processing the gold 

and eventually brought a fabulous amount of wealth to the area. 

This is the Historic Columbia River Highway, parts of which are still in 
use today.

The gold from the Bohemia Mining District brought a financial boom to the town of Cottage Grove.
