The Jackson County Courthouse is a former county courthouse in Jacksonville, Oregon, United States, built in 1883. The courthouse is a contributing property of the Jacksonville Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). It was formerly the Jacksonville Museum owned by Jackson County and operated by the Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS), which also managed several other historic properties in Jacksonville. The museum in the courthouse closed in 2006 because of lack of funding. In 2010, the Jacksonville Heritage Society was formed to assume management of the historic Courthouse, the 1873 Cornelius C. Beekman House, the 1863 Cornelius C. Beekman Bank, and the 1868 St. Joseph's Catholic Rectory. The SOHS still operates Hanley Farm in Central Point and a research library in Medford.
