Description
The Zane Grey Cabin is located along the eastern border of Curry County, Oregon in township 33 south, range 9 west, section 18 of the Willamette Meridian. The cabin site, which is not accessed by road, is located deep within a forested canyon carved through the Klamath Range by the Rogue River. The 32-acre site consists of a compound of buildings, structures and landscape features located on a patented placer mining claim on Winkle Bar, an alluvial terrace within a horseshoe bend of the Rogue River. Of the 15 structures on the site, three are contributing features, while the remainder are considered non-contributing. The three contributing structures include a single-pen log cabin built by Zane Grey in 1926, a circa-1925 wooden boat constructed for and used by Zane Grey to navigate to the cabin, and an extensive dry-stacked stone retaining wall possibly constructed by 19th Century Chinese miners that Zane Grey incorporated into his landscape design. The 11 non-contributing structures are mostly modern, balloon framed structures including two ranch­style residences, a garage and several utility buildings constructed after the property was purchased from the heirs of Zane Grey in 1963.
