Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

BUNCOM, OREGON

Buncom is the last remaining Ghost Town in Southern Oregon. Located 20 miles southwest of Medford near the confluence of Sterling Creek and the Little Applegate River, Buncom was first settled by gold miners in the late 1850s and 1860s. Later, it was the supply center for the farmers, ranchers and loggers living in the Little Applegate Valley. Today, its abandoned buildings remain as a symbol of a simpler past, and a focus for the rural residents who live nearby.

"Buncom: Crossroads Station" relates the history of this typical rural Oregon community from its beginning to the present. In addition, it places local events in the context of the outside world. Even in their peaceful isolation, Buncom's pioneers--like those in other communities--were affected and influenced by the trends and forces that were shaping the globe.

Both authors live at Buncom. Connie Fowler writes for regional and local publications. J.B. Roberts is a rancher.

The Buncom Historical Society, publisher of this book, is a non-profit Oregon corporation dedicated to preserving the remaining buildings at Buncom and their history. Its membership is made up of nearby residents and others who care about Buncom as a symbol of our past.
