Physical Description

Three story brick building, housing businesses and apartments. Adjoining "Tabernacle" is a former church, now being renovated as a performance space.

Current Condition

Rehabilitated and in use.


The side building, the 'Tabernacle', was constructed by a turn of the century evangelist named Billy Sunday in 1922, who used it for two years. It has since been used as a bank, dance hall, became a bakery workroom in the 1940s, and was Sheehans Dry Goods at one point. Buffalo Rising
