About Rogue River

The city of Rogue River sprang up along in an area known as Tailholt — so dubbed because travelers crossed the Rogue River there by hanging on to their horses’ tails as the animals swam across the torrent. Davis "Coyote" Evans built a ferry there in 1851. The town sprang up when John Woods purchased land, built a home and small store, and opened the Woodville post office in February 1876. In 1912, Woodville’s name changed to Rogue River, presumably to get better advertising, "Oregon Geographic Names" reports.
