1908 – Purchased land at 4th and Pike for the site of the Joshua Green Building

The corner lot at 4th Avenue and Pike Street was occupied by several ramshackle stores, including a movie theater and a butcher shop.  Fearing bubonic plague from rats brought over from the Orient, City officials ordered the butcher shop closed.  The ramshackle wooden stores were soon demolished and the 10 story Joshua Green Building rose in their place.
