Applegate is an unincorporated community in Jackson County, Oregon, United States.[1] It is located west of Medford on Oregon Route 238 and the Applegate River. The community was probably named for Lindsay Applegate, who, along with his brothers Jesse and Charles, explored the Applegate Valley while blazing the Applegate Trail.[2]
