Building/structure dates: 1890 initial construction
Significance: Bag Mart, a three-story brick and wood frame structure erected in the 1850s, is situated on lot 807 on the west side of Seventh Streets between D and E Streets (1850s tax books). Approximately forty feet high, this rectangular building has dimensions of eighteen feet by fifty feet. The one-bay wide store is flanked by the Kresge building to the north and the Lansburgh's Department store to the south. Today this structure presents n entirely blank east facade. A projecting modern plate glass storefront is the sole fenestration on the Seventh Street elevation. Metal panels with a baked enamel finish cover the upper tow floors of the facade. The structure consists of brick bearing walls with wood-framed floors.
