1. City Wharf and Warehouses Marker
Inscription. The City’s Wharf and Warehouse probably was constructed in the late 1880’s. A south extension likely was added around 1900. The small waterfront facility provided river-craft dockage for a number of small independent operators. As indicated by the rooftop sign in the photo above, the American Fish Company had leased space within the building. A comprehensive historic study of these businesses has never been undertaken and little is known of the vessels or the transportation services they provided.
