Introduction: Why You Should Care About Bank of the Cascades Medford Oregon
Medford has a population of 54,930 and is the county seat of Jackson County and the only city in the Rogue Valley. It’s home to Pacific University, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), the Oregon Bach Festival and some great restaurants, shopping, events and more.
Medford City Park, the Rogue Valley Mall and the Rogue River Greenway are among its popular attractions.
The area’s most prominent attraction is probably America’s first commercial brewery, founded by German immigrant Christian Kraemer in 1847. It was located near today’s Medford High School and produced ales with names like “Black Diamond” and “Cascade Amber.” The site is now occupied by a shopping center. I get asked what’s on my list to visit or experience in the Medford area quite often. The honest answer? Not much. The city is not exactly a tourist destination, so I thought we could take a look at the community that is home to the Bank of the Cascades and find some reasons to spend time there this summer.
