Kim’s

Pretty much anyone from Medford knows – and loves – this place.  It’s been closed for years, and I hear it’s been purchased by some big outfit and will likely be torn down soon.  ALL RUMORS, of course.  I don’t really know anything, except that it’s a great place to paint, although the black top gets pretty hot, even this early in the warm season.  It’s funny, I listen to audio books when I paint, and often I’ll look at a painting and flash back to segments of a book.  Carl Hiaasen for this one – not very deep, I’m afraid, but if he wrote stories in Southern Oregon, maybe this place would be in one.

  1. This is great. My grandpa use to take our whole family to Kim’s once a month. We had several reunions there as well. I still see the waitress that watched us grow up & always told my grandpa that one day she would run off with him as she gave him a smooch.

  2. I love these!! I’m so glad you captured this before demolition started. It’s rare and wonderful that you can so artfully memorialize Kim’s. I love to hear that others had fond memories of the restaurant too!! Thank you!!
