Around the turn of the century, the Lawrence family leather goods business prospered and began to outgrow its location. As a result, the Lawrence Building was constructed in 1902 by the Lawrence family. The nature of the Lawrence leather goods business demanded large, open spaces to meet their manufacturing needs. This concept provided great flexibility then as it does now. The style of the building is second Renaissance Revival, designed by Whidden and Lewis, prominent Northwest architects.
