Mellelo Coffee Roasters

   Built to house the Southern Oregon Gas Company in 1936, this building is now home to Mellelo Coffee Roasters. The historic character of the structure was obscured with tile and stucco paneling during a mid-1970s renovation. Restoration efforts in 2003, part of the Medford Urban Renewal Facade Improvement Program, once again revealed the original architectural details. In May 2004, the Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission recognized the outstanding merits of the restoration with a preservation award plaque.
