1. The Andrew Kuehn Company Marker
Inscription. Andrew Kuehn built this quartzite building in 1903 for a wholesale grocery distribution center and warehouse. A German, Kuehn came alone to America at age 15 in 1870. After working his way across the midwest, he settled in Sioux Falls in 1900 where he opened the Andrew Kuehn Wholesale Grocery Co. in the Blauvelt Building on the corner of 5th and Main. He and his sons ran the business and the Sioux Falls Coffee and Spice Co. until 1930. Afterwards the building was used for commercial storage.

In 1983 the warehouse was converted into office, 23 apartments, and commercial space, giving it new life through creative reuse.
