Built in 1889 by Samuel Kreidel in the High German Romantic style of architecture, this unique structure was one of the major historic landmarks of Ellensburg until the tower was removed and major façade changes were made in the 1940s. The Davidson Building, often called the Phoenix Block, is in distance at the intersection of Fourth and Pearl Streets.Postcard titled: "East side of Pearl Street, looking north Ellensburg, Wash."
