Historic Renovation Award 2006

The Cuthbert Building, constructed in 1910, was built by the Big Bend Milling Company. Franklin Cuthbert's furniture originally occupied the building. The building has housed a series of department stores. In 1920, the Golden Rule Mercantile Co., a popular Southern Oregon retail company, bought the building. In 1927, J.C. Penney bought the property and, 1947, leased it, remaining there until the early 1960's.
Former owner Fred Phelps initiated the renovation in 2002. J. R. Development, LLC, purchased the property in 2004 and restored the west elevation to approximate the original building design. Awnings and tile-covered columns were the finishing touches to the transformation. The building reflects the influence of the Chicago School style of architecture.
For the historically sensitive renovation of a significant asset to the downtown historic district, the Medford Historic Commission awards this plaque to owner J.R. Development, LLC.
