A Brief History of 1601-1613 Store Street & 502-510 Pandora Avenue

This building was built in 1913 by architect Milo S. Farwell as a warehouse for Scott & Peden, a feed and grain dealer.

As a feed and grain warehouse this was a very utilitarian building. A rail line once ran directly to the building so boxcars could be brought right up to the loading docks.

In 1987 the building was renovated into Swan’s Hotel & Brewpub.
