Ginger Rogers Theater.

Ginger Rogers owned the 1000 acre "Rogue River Ranch" Ginger Rogersnear Eagle Point, Oregon from 1940 to 1990. There she fished as well as entertained some of Hollywood's brightest stars. The ranch was a working dairy for many years and supplied milk to Camp White in Southern Oregon during World War II. Always a private person, Rogers sought out Oregon to put distance between her public persona and her private life. There was little comparison between her glamorous image on screen and her modest, unpretentious home life.

Ginger Rogers - 1911 to 1995
Rogers died at the age of 83 in Rancho Mirage, California on April 25, 1995. The Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater in Medford, Oregon is named in her honor.
