JACKSONVILLE, Ore. -- Bozo the Clown is possibly the best known of all the clowns and the original Bozo is from Jacksonville.

Pinto Colvig, also known as Bozo the Clown, was born in a house on Oregon Street in 1892. He was the youngest of five children.

He picked up the name ‘Pinto’ from his face full of freckles and the spotted horse he used to ride around.
