The Union Creek Historic District on the upper Rogue River in Union Creek, Oregon, is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places because it is a fine representative of a type of rustic resort popular in the early 20th century and has been little altered since the 1930s. There are almost one hundred buildings and other facilities in the Union Creek Historic District, almost all of which conform to the Forest Service plans of the 1920s and 30s. Roughly a third were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) from 1933 to 1942, working out of the Upper Rogue River seasonal camp just south of the Union Creek Resort.
In 1936, CCC enrollees built the section of the Rogue River Trail from Union Creek to the Natural Bridge on the Rogue, about 10 miles in all.
