    A two-time winner of “The All-America City Award” from the National Civic League, Cottage Grove is located just twenty minutes south of Eugene – Springfield and is home to almost 10,000 residents. Cottage Grove has a rich history, including its Historic Downtown District, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.

    Gold was discovered in the Bohemia Mountains above Cottage Grove in the mid-1800s, and the area’s gold mining history still plays an important role in the community. The Bohemia Gold Mining Museum shares stories through photographs, tools, and other artifacts, while the Bohemia Mining Days festival celebrates the gold mining legacy with living history exhibits, vendors, local entertainers, and a parade.

    Cottage Grove has been a backdrop in a number of movies over the years, including The General, Animal House, and Stand By Me.
