2. Wirth, Hammel and Co., Horse Stables
Wirth, Hammel and Co. hired architect H.C. Koch to design this horse stable in 1892. They were considered to be one of the largest providers of draft, saddle and carriage horses to the Midwest as well as to the leading lumbermen of the region. In 1936, an agent for Kingsbury Breweries opened a beer depot at the site. From the 1960s to the present it has had assorted warehouse uses. Renovated in 2005, national retailer Design Within Reach opened their doors in 2006.
