Baker City in Baker County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
The building was constructed in 1908 for Frank W. Bishop, who operated a plumbing and hardware business in half of the building and rented the other half. Bishop also had mining interests in Baker County.
Following the 1940 fire, the upper facade of the building was covered by a solid plaster front. The plaster was removed in 1987 to restore the building’s original appearance.
