1. Lemke Building Marker
Inscription. This two-story brick building was constructed in 1910. The main elevation displays the only white glazed brick used in the downtown area. The building has examples of classic detailing, including brick keystones with flat voussoirs and a six-course corbeled cornice.
Ferdinand Lemke built this structure to replace his saloon, the “Yellowstone,” located on First Street across from the Umatilla House hotel. The saloon was damaged by fire in 1909 and condemned by the fire marshal, who owned a competing saloon. Later uses of the building included the Parlor Grocery and the meat-cutting firm of A.S. Milne.
 
Erected by City of The Dalles.
