Takelma Salmon Ceremony Marker


Heading north on Interstate 5 from Medford, take exit 40 and turn right toward Gold Hill. At the intersection with Highway 234, turn left, and immediately turn Right onto Upper River Road before Highway 234 crosses the Rogue River. The Sign is located on Upper River Road, on the left side, about 0.9 miles from the road’s intersection with Highway 234.


Be sure to see the marker for the Storytelling Stone about 0.1 miles back toward Gold Hill. The view of Ti’lomikh Falls is best seen from there. It is an easy walk.

This sign marks the location on the Rogue River of the Story Chair, where the Takelma people celebrated the Salmon Ceremony.
