Welcome To Elkton Oregon
A Little About Our Town of Elkton!

Situated at the junction of Elk Creek and the Umpqua River, Elkton was settled in the 1850s. The Hudson’s Bay Company maintained Fort Umpqua in the vicinity, and Elkton was an early-day Douglas County seat. Settlers planted fields of wheat, while loggers went to work clearing the woods. The raw products ended up at the Elkton Saw and Flouring Mills. The town has a long history of fires and floods, and few original structures remain. There are a few stores that serve residents and travelers on Highway 38, which passes through Elkton from the Oregon Coast to Interstate 5.
