Information about localities, too small or too brief to describe in separate pages. Exception to this are Post Offices.

  • Abbott Butte, straddling Douglas and Jackson counties, see reference in Douglas County Trivia Tidbits.
  • Agate Desert, Northeast of Central Point and just south of Rogue River. It was named for the minerals found there in some abundance. It is not a desert in the exact sense of the word. Some of Agate Desert was used for the development of Camp White in World War II. On Feb. 13, 1901, a post office with the name Agate was established in the area, with Jefferson S. Grigsby first and only postmaster. The office was closed Apr. 30, 1907, and the area was served from Central Point.
