Originally known as the Pacific Block, this building was designed by John Parkinson, a noteworthy Seattle-Los Angeles architect. Built in 1890, it housed the office of the Puget Sound Electric Railway Interurban Line, which served Seattle and Tacoma. Beginning service in 1902, the Interurban Railway operated until 1928 when it was abandoned, due to increased use of the automobile.
