Eagle Point, Oregon

Visit Eagle Point

Eagle Point, Oregon is a small community near Medford in Southwestern Oregon.  Though it has seen tremendous growth in the last decade, Eagle Point remains a community largely centered around agriculture.

If you’re the patriotic sort – and who isn’t? – it’s time to schedlue a visit to the streets of Eagle Point on a major American holiday.  You won’t be disappointed.  And who could ever forget the breathtaking sight of flag-lined streets, waving freely in the breeze.  Does it get better?  Consider this.  Each of the flags once shrouded the casket of a fallen hero and was donated by their families.  The Avenue of Flags is truly amazing!
