National Register of Historic Places in Jackson County
Jackson County Courthouse was designed by John G. Link, a German-born architect who maintained a long and prosperous practice centered in Butte, Montana. Its boldness of scale, classical spirit and the quality of various fittings and finishes make it an outstanding example of Starved Classical/Art Deco architecture.
The construction of Jackson County Courthouse transcended the contemporary economic depression and political intrigues of the early 1930s. It is the nucleus from which more recent public buildings have evolved to complete the cluster of civic architecture which distinguishes downtown Medford.
