Regarding American Candy Company. The American Candy Co. made fine chocolates and assorted candies in this 1902 building designed by Charles Crane. In the 1940's the warehouse was utilized first by Boston Store for storage and then by Pro-Pac for a war materials processing plant. Rauschenberger Co., a manufacturer of twine, cordage and hair goods, operated at this location since 1950. Renovated and converted to condominiums in 2003. First floor retail includes Broadway Paper and Colleen Horner Kitchen Bath Tile Stone.
