Ruch Historical Marker


The Marker is located in the town of Ruch, at the intersection of Highway 238 and the Applegate Road. From Highway 238, turn onto the Applegate Road. The Marker is located on the right, just before the third building on the right, in a small parking lot. The site is shared with a marker commemorating Ralph C. Springer, an Oregon State Police Officer who died in 1995.


This marker was installed in 1976 to document the founding of the settlement of Ruch in 1896 by Casper M. Ruch.
