114 YEARS OF UNINTERRUPTED MAIL SERVICE TO THE UPRIVER AREA! "One of the oldest and most popular traditions on the Oregon Coast began in 1895 on the Rogue River. It was born humbly, arising out of the need of remote settlers and miners living in the vast wilderness of the Rogue River Canyon to communicate with the outside world, to send and receive letters and packages to and from distant relatives, to stay associated with friends far away.

From this need to communicate, intensified by isolation, evolved a tenacious human enterprise, struggling to overcome forces of nature in a whitewater world. The history of that achievement is a chronicle of dedication and vision of heroism, punctuated by tragedy, accented with humor. It is a tradition that has endured and grown into one of the most unique and famous visitor attractions in the West.

The celebration of a centennial is a goal sought by many companies, a rare landmark reached by few. The Rogue River Mail Boat Trips is proud to have accomplished this goal in 1995, having provided 100-years of continuous postal service on the Rogue River between the Gold Beach-Wedderburn and Agness post offices."
