Inscription.  When the St. Michaels Packing Company constructed this building in 1933, the Great Depression was at its height. To economize, the company bought a freight terminal in nearby Claiborne, Maryland from Baltimore, Chesapeake & Atlantic Railway Company, which the BC&A no longer needed.

The St. Michaels Packing Company disassembled the structure and rebuilt it in a new configuration here, next to their cannery on the end of Navy Point. At the height of the tomato season, cans straight out of the steamer were piled in this building until they could be shipped to market.
