Cornerspotted: The Metropole Building at 2nd & Yesler

New, 1 comment

Yesterday, we asked you to guess what this pre-1900 building in Seattle is and where it's located. We'll credit Will Carroll with the first correct answer to get to us...The Metropole Building.

Image: Wikimedia Built sometime around 1892 or 1893, this structure survived the Great Seattle Fire as well as one in 2007 that left the interiors scorched but the exterior intact. It was the home of the first G.O. Guy drugstore, a chain that predates Bartell's in the region. The 27,645 sq. ft. historic building is currently for sale, asking $3.5M. Interested?
