About JacksonvilleFounded in 1852, Jacksonville has more than 100 preserved pioneer buildings—more than 80 of which have historical markers. This collection is the result of “gold fever”; it was here that the Pacific Northwest's first gold discovery occurred. Several museums reflect pioneer life in the 1800s.
Between June and mid-September, the Britt Festivals take place at Britt Pavilion. During this time, 40-45 concerts are given at the outdoor amphitheater.
