McCloud was founded more than 115 years as a lumber mill town and railroading center established by the McCloud River Lumber Company, known by its residents as “Mother McCloud”. McCloud’s downtown area is a Nationally Registered Historic District, featuring numerous historic buildings. Today, McCloud is a popular destination for a quiet retreat among forests, rivers and mountains, and as home base for a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities. Materials on display at the Heritage Junction Museum on Main Street show that McCloud’s residents have long enjoyed playing and listening to music as a diversion from hard work. That tradition continues with McCloud Mountain Bluegrass.
