Junction City Real Estate

    Just minutes north of Eugene and the Eugene Airport is Junction City, named for a railroad junction in the 1870s that never came to be, although its downtown houses a historic steam locomotive as a nod to its history. This community of just over 5,000 residents has its roots in family farms, including Lochmead Farms, one of the largest privately owned dairy farms in the Pacific Northwest.

    Junction City has long been a player in the recreational vehicle industry, earning it the nickname of “The RV Manufacturing Capital of the World”. While the RV industry has seen its ups and downs, Junction City remains a destination for dealerships, manufacturers, and service centers offering everything from RV rentals, repairs, groceries, and dog grooming.

    As many as 20% of Junction City’s residents are thought to have Danish roots thanks in part to a Danish settlement founded in Junction City in 1902. The area still celebrates this history every August during its annual Scandinavian Festival. As many as 100,000 people take part in this four-day festival featuring traditional food, crafts, dancing, costumes, language classes, and more.
