Indian Mary County Park

In 1894, Mary Peters “Indian Mary” applied for squatters’ rights for land on which her father Umpqua Joe had built a cabin on the hill overlooking Hellgate Canyon. Her father had been an Indian scout during the Rogue River Indian Wars. She received a 25 year deed and formed the smallest Indian Reservation in the United States. Josephine County eventually converted the land into the beautiful park we now call “Indian Mary.”
