Inscription. Floyd Holmes Sine came to Arizona in 1897. Sine is considered to be the father of Glendale's city water system. When he bought this site in 1910, it was the only public well and water system. He added a storage tank and supply lines to the commercial center, then sold the water system to the City in 1915. Sine built this Mission-style building in 1912, where his younger brothers, Tuck and Van operated Sine Brothers Hardware Company. Sine Brothers Hardware occupied the building until 1991. The City of Glendale bought and restored this building for city offices in 1998.
