Gardner's Cigar Factory

- 629 Kent Street -

This 19th century cigar factory, with its brick and stone construction and distinctive curved front, is now a residence and artists’ studio. Of Frogtown’s remaining commercial and small industrial buildings scattered throughout the neighborhood, this building has a very distinct design. It is very similar to a lost building, the former Saint Albans Grocery at 573 N. Saint Albans Street, built in 1898 but recently torn down.
