Northern Pacific Railway Warehouse

(Northern Warehouse Building)

- 308 Prince Street (at Broadway) -
- 1907-08, Northern Pacific Railway Company -

The Northern Pacific Railway completed construction to the West Coast in 1883. Thereafter, the line played a key role in supplying merchants in North Dakota and Montana with goods from Lowertown wholesalers. Lines connecting with Great Lakes shipping routes created an efficient link with the East Coast. Beyond this warehouse stands one row of an earlier generation of railroad freight houses, the last survivors in Lowertown of a structure once common to all rail centers.
