1. Teal Building Marker
Inscription.  The firm of Teal, Foster, and Co. built this fine brick office building. Brothers George and James Teal and their partner, Ernest Le Neve Foster, were "general mining agents and consulting engineers.” Their ads indicate that they managed mining properties, inspected mines, made estimates for mining machinery and buildings, made underground and surface surveys, and acted as arbitrators in matters of dispute.

Initially, the proprietors occupied "two elegantly fitted offices” on the ground floor. Two mining companies used the remainder of the first floor for offices. Upstairs, a judge, the Town and County Surveyor, and the staff of the journal Mining Review each had two rooms.

In the 20th century, the building was converted to apartments, and stucco now covers the original brick.
 
Erected 2007 by Town of Georgetown and Historic Georgetown, Inc.
