Further Developments

Exhibit title: 

Though companies such as Rogue River Valley Canal Company and Fish Lake Water Company were the first efficient water and irrigation establishments in Southern Oregon, there were several irrigation districts that came into place later on in the twentieth century. The Medford Irrigation District was founded in 1917, and worked with the Rogue River Valley Canal Company. The Rogue River Irrigation District was founded in 1929.
