Gold Hill is the home of the famous "Oregon Vortex" where physicist H. John Lister performed more than 14,000 experiments and explained the strange phenomena as a whirlpool of invisible energy. This community was founded in the early 1800's by miners looking to make it rich shortly after a large gold nugget was found. The town's fathers bought & sold land, traded and homesteaded until the town is what it is today.
The Gold Dust Music and Art Festival is held in June every year, and A Raging River Rock Art Paint-Out and Contest is held every spring. Other attractions in the area include: Miles of hiking trails, world famous Rogue River, fishing, kayaking & many other water sports, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Medford Jazz Jubilee and the Del Rio Vineyards.
Gold Hill is part of the Medford-Ashland, Oregon metro area.
