2. S. Heller Elevator Company
The Art Moderne entrance was added in 1922 and in 1929 a connecting building was constructed on the corner. Within a few years, Heller had a printing company, an engraver and the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle as tenants. Heller closed its doors in 1956 and the building has been owned and occupied by the Two Forty Corporation since. A unique diving equipment manufacturer and supply shop, a running equipment store and women’s boutique share the space. -Historic Third Ward Walking Tour brochure
