1. The Buel-Town Building 1898 Marker
Inscription. With its arched corner entrance, bay window, and corbelled brick cornice, this building reflects the originality of the architects Hebbard and Gill. Gill, the principle designer, had a preference for natural forms, over the highly ornate European styles common of his era. This is evident in this structure, which was one of his earliest works. After serving tenants such as the Western Metal Company and Buel-Town Chemicals, the building was converted for use as The Old Spaghetti Factory Restaurant in 1974.
 
Erected by Gaslamp Quarter Association, Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation, San Diego Historical Society. (Marker Number 71.)
