As far as I can determine, the original Hellman building was constructed about 1897. In 1903, I.W. Hellman announced plans to extend the building along 2nd Street and add two stories--although the 1959 photograph shows it as a three-story building.

A feature on one of the more colorful residents of the building.


And less than fond memories of the Hellman Building in its later days.
