Real estate investors financed this warehouse for use by Farwell, Ozmun, and Kirk, hardware wholesalers. At the turn of the century, F.O.K. salesmen canvassed a territory stretching west to the Pacific Coast and south as far as Arkansas. Today, the company lives on as the national chain of OK Hardware Stores. This massive warehouse illustrates the pleasing effect of rhythmic Romanesque Revival designs in commercial architecture.
