Strowbridge Building, 1878

So little is left of this sign that you'd almost never know one ever existed, but a few extremely faded letters remain. Originally built to house the Oregon Furniture Manufacturing Company, it was also used as a furniture and household retail warehouse, was part of the Yamhill Sanitary Market and housed a bar, grocery store, and tool store over the years. Partially condemned, it was purchased in 1978 and renovated.

The building is at SW 1st and Yamhill; the remains of the sign can be seen from SW 1st and Morrison.
