1. Isaac Knowles - Knowles Block Marker
Inscription.  This corner was once occupied by the ornate Victorian home of Isaac Knowles, the principal founder of the K.T. and K. Pottery Company. The home, built in the 1870's, survived Isaac's death in 1902 but was demolished prior to 1910. The home was replaced with a commercial structure known as the Knowles Block which opened in 1912. The building was occupied for many decades by the Ogilvie department store.
