Tucked away in Northeastern Oregon, the town of Joseph is one of Oregon’s premier small towns for art and culture. Art galleries, unique shops and interesting restaurants accentuate the Main Street Art Walk—a collection of monumentally-sized bronzes on public view.
The town is greatly influenced by local artists. The Joseph Oregon Artist Studio Tour program is a popular year round activity. Visitors make appointments with local artists for complimentary, no obligation tours of their studios. Local artistic bronze foundries schedule tours throughout the summer months and on a limited basis in winter.
Nature lovers will enjoy numerous outdoor activities. Wallowa Lake and the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest are quickly accessible. Trailheads leading into the Eaglecap Wilderness, Oregon’s largest wilderness area, are within easy driving distance. Wildlife in the area include mule deer, elk, various migratory birds, and, lately, newly arrived wolves. The Nature Conservancy’s Zumwalt Prairie Preserve, the largest grassland preserve of its kind in the United States, is within an hour’s drive of Joseph Oregon.
Joseph, Oregon, is named for Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe. Visitors interested in Nez Perce history will find information and sites dedicated to the Nez Perce throughout the area. At the foot of Wallowa Lake is the Old Chief Joseph Gravesite and the start of the Nez Perce National Historic Trail. Nearby is one of Oregon’s newest state parks, the Iwetemlaykin State Heritage Site. In Joseph is a Nez Perce photo installation hosted by the local Wallowa Band Nez Perce Trail Interpretive Center.
Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, one of Oregon’s few All-American designated roads, extends from LaGrande to Baker City via Joseph. Although the midway portion of this road is closed in winter, visitors from June through early November can see into the Oregon portion of Hells Canyon from scenic lookouts.
Winter and spring guests will enjoy unencumbered snowmobiling, snowshoeing and backcountry skiing opportunities. The Wallowa Avalanche Center provides useful snow reports for all wintertime guests. No waiting in lines here!
Joseph, Oregon, is hosts various events throughout the summer. From the fine art juried Wallowa Valley Festival of Arts in June through the Bronze Bike Motorcyle Rendezvous in August, there’s something here for everyone.
