Delschneider Building

Delschneider Building, 1859

The west wall of the Delschneider Building is rich in advertising history. Very little is readable any more but bits of the many layers are there to be appreciated. "Ghirardelli's Chocolate" can be made out on the left side, as well as "Keene Cigars." Fragments of many old signs can be seen on the right side.

The Delschneider Building (the three story building at the far right) is the second oldest building in the Skidmore/Old Town area. It was first used as a factory by the Novelty Iron and Brass Works. You can see this great wall from the corner of SW 1st and Oak.
