The Northrup King Building is actually a complex of 10 buildings first constructed in 1917.
Originally built for and occupied by the Northrup King & Co. seed company, its location adjoining two sets of railroad tracks made it the ideal place to ship seeds across the United States. Northrup King & Co. occupied the building until the late 1980s, when it was sold to Jim Stanton of Shamrock Properties.
Through an ongoing process of renovation, Stanton and his daughter Debbie Woodward (Property Manager from 2001 – 2018) turned the Northrup King Building into the creative center of over 350 artists and arts-related businesses that you know today.
The building was sold to Artspace Projects, Inc. upon Woodward’s retirement.
