Physical Description

5 story brick commercial building on a corner parcel

Current Condition

Demolished, likely during the 1960's urban renewal program that flattened Elm and Oak street. The intention was to create a ring road of thruways (partially constructed) to isolate downtown from the surrounding neighborhoods, and attract suburban development that would build less dense blocks. This entire city block remained an empty field for many decades before becoming the parking garage and parking lot for Catholic Health, along with their six-story office building in the corner of the parcel.

History

1896 - August Beck & Sons - Meat Cutters

Recent Events and Actions Taken

2013 - Construction began for Catholic Health building, garage and parking lot.
