Medford Downtown Historic District
Between Fourth and Ninth Streets, Oakdale and Riverside Avenues
Medford

This 1,000-acre historic district contains 104 contributing buildings.

In some of our photographs, Medford appears to be a ghost town. Not so. Our shoot was early on a Sunday morning before most Main Street merchants had opened for business.
