Roseburg (123.358W 43.220N) is a town and rail junction in the upper Willamette Valley of Oregon. Established in 1851 by Aaron Rose, the town became an important waypoint on the Oregon-California Trail. The area has abundant timber and good farm land, and provided access to a number of nearby mines, such as the Bonanza mercury mine, the Riddle nickel mine, and the Grants Pass mining district.
