William Grossman & Co Coffee & Tea Mill 107 7F

After a tragic fire in 1892, prominent local architects stepped in to design many of the structures in the Third Ward. Construction continued over 36 years and because of this relatively short span of development, the buildings exhibit an interesting continuity that unifies the neighborhood. This building was built in 1903 as the William Grossman & Co. Coffee & Tea Mill by architects H. Messmer & Son. This property was one of 70 properties in the Historic Third Ward District placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
