Backstory and Context
One of four buildings constructed by town founder Peter Kirk, this building was one of several funded by the Kirkland Investment Company in the years prior to the national economic recession of 1893 that derailed Kirk's vision of building a series of steel mills in this area and build Kirkland as "the Pittsburg of the West."
