Baker City in Baker County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
Basche-Sage Hardware Co. Building
At its peak, Basche-Sage stocked an inventory of 45,000 different items and employed 155 people. In 1980, however, the owners, citing “sustained losses,” announced the company’s closure. It was the last independent hardware wholesaler in Oregon. The Baker City headquarters building was sold, and the new owner converted it to a retail mall.
