The Liberty Building is a rare example of Commercial Style architecture built in Southern Oregon in the first decade of the 20th century.

The building, designed by prominent local architect Frank C. Clark, is outstanding not only for its exceptional height of four stories but also for its workmanship and structural integrity.

Adapted from the NRHP nomination submitted in 1978.

The Garnett-Corey Hardware company occupied the ground floor with office suites above. A large gathering of citizens attended the grand opening.

"The faith and confidence the Garnett-Corey people have in the Rogue River valley is clearly demonstrated by what they have seen fit to do for the city of Medford. They have erected the first four-story building of which the city can boast, which is modern in every respect."
