—1898 · Silas H. Wright —

Longtime tobacco man, North Carolinian Silas Wright, owned the St. Charles Tobacco Company. By 1900, tobacco manufacturing had become a science. Wright flavored his company's plug and twist tobacco with licorice and other spices.

Built in 1898 for $2,000 Wright sold this building to St. Louis tobacco manufacturer Robert B. Dula for the tidy sum of $9,000.
