Medford history

Medford was incorporated as a city in 1885.

The city was divided by the construction of I-5 in the 1950s: the downtown and inner neighborhoods on the west side of the freeway, the more affluent neighborhoods on the east side. As a result, Medford has struggled for decades with urban decay affecting its core. However, the town has benefited greatly from the recent influx of retirees into Oregon from California.

A ballot measure to block building an interchange that would improve access between the two parts was rejected in the general election of November 5, 2003. Supporters claimed that it would only move traffic congestion from one location to another, while civic and business leaders warned it would cost the city $38 million in state and federal funds. [So was the measure to pay for its construction, or to bar it? Please clarify.]

The largest direct marketer of fruits and food gifts in the United States, Bear Creek Corporation, is based in Medford. It is the second largest employer in Oregon, with 3,500 year-around employees and about 10,000 seasonal. Bear Creek was founded in 1886 to market the harvest from the orchards of the Rogue Valley.
